The City of Elizabethtown has a new leader for one its departments. Rita Davis was promoted to Director of Stormwater Management at a City Council meeting earlier this week. Davis is also the first woman to head a department for the city in almost 40 years, a feat which she does not take lightly. Davis says she wants to be a role model for young women who wish to go into a career in mathematics, engineering, or science. Davis also says the department already has several projects lined up, including renovating aging flood control dams. Davis replaces outgoing director Robert Bush.

The organization received over $8,000 in $2 bills from the Eric and Joe show. The proceeds will be going towards the Helping Hand of Hope Beds for Children Program.
