The County Commissioners decided in public hearing today that the search for the next County Administrator will open today, and that it will begin with the Commissioners accepting applications from internal Mesa County employees only. The Commissioners each made statements that it is important to them that the employees of Mesa County know that they are valuable and that internal candidates have opportunities for upward growth within the organization.
The Commissioners will accept applications through Sunday, November 23, 2014, and plan to review the applications received during an executive session on Monday, November 24, 2014.
The Commissioners’ goal is to review the interested internal candidates as soon as possible, and to complete the process of appointment to serve as Mesa County’s chief executive officer by December 15, 2014. The vote was unanimous that the committee will be comprised of the Board of County Commissioners and that the job description and salary range and grade remaining as presently defined.
The job description is included below. Applications are accepted only through the County’s human resources webpage.
