MAYVILLE – Doug Diers, director of the Chautauqua County Veterans Service Agency since last September, is resigning from his position effective Aug. 9, according to County Executive Gregory J. Edwards.

Diers, a Chautauqua County native and a retired Air Force master sergeant, has accepted a teaching position at Kessler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Miss., training personnel in communication and information systems, Edwards reported.

Edwards said he has begun the process of finding a successor and will set up a bipartisan committee to review applications for a new director. He noted that a new veteran service officer also will be needed when the current officer retires next April.
