Slow steps toward new Mono Assessor

MONO COURTHOUSEMono Supervisors have asked County Administrator Jim Arkens to take care of the fact that both the Mono Assessor and her assistant have resigned.  Arkens said the Board wants to move slowly on replacement of Assessor Jody Henning.

At the end of May, Henning handed in a letter of resignation and so did her assistant Chris Lyon.  Mono County did issue a job flyer to hire a new assistant.  Arkens said that move will go forward.  As for filling the vacant Assessor’s position, Arkens said the Board, “does not want to jump in.  They want to make sure the right person is selected.”  Arkens said the Board has “mixed feelings” on how to do this.

CAO Arkens said that a number of people are interested in the elected position.  The Board of Supervisors does have the power to appoint someone to fill the job until the next election.  Arkens said a former employee has  shown an interest in the Assessor job as has an assessor from another county.  “A bunch of people are interested,” said Arkens.

Meanwhile, Arkens, who already oversees administration, human resources and risk management, will now also supervise the Assessor’s Office with help from his assistant.

    “King of Mono County” ?

    Could this be yet more anti-government, Tea-party paranoia rhetoric?

      Funny cause I am a flamin liberal democrat, who just happens to think if one person is in charge of everything it kind of makes them a king. If you have an issue and you work for public works, what do you do? can’t go to HR, cause he is your boss too ,oop can’t go to the Cao cause he is the same guy.

      I beg to differ, I didn’t start or open anything, if folks hate the government or people in charge, well most folks are reasonable people, so perhaps, just maybe they have A DARN GOOD REASON for their feelings. Which you shouldn’t try and fit neatly into a box. Blaming me for anything shows your limited intelligence. let me guess you count yourself educated and far superior to those people that just work a job

  4. Uncivil behavior June 20, 2012 at 6:13 am #

    In difficult economic times (you better get used to it) some people can offer absolutely no solutions but bash everyone and anyone in charge of departments, offices, etc. … in the nastiest way then can think of. Amazing how uncivil many people today are.
    This accomplishes nothing.
