County Administrator announces restructuring

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

County Administrator Anthony Mortillaro announced Wednesday that he had named Regina Wheeler to a newly titled position, assistant to the county administrator.

Among several organizational changes that came out of a period of review and consultation with staff and county councilors, Mortillaro also added the role of administrative services director to the responsibilities of Chief Financial Officer Steve Lynne.  

Mortillaro was appointed as county administrator after the retirement of Max Baker on Oct. 21 and the announcement noted that he has been meeting daily since then with staff and county councilors.

“I’m looking at what we need to get done here in terms of major issues facing the county and our strategic goals,” Mortillaro said in an interview Tuesday afternoon. “In addition, I want to strengthen the focus on one of our council’s top goals ­— to diversify the economy and revitalize our downtowns.”

The changes will not impact county budgets, Mortillaro said, noting that his former position of assistant county administrator would not be filled and the total number of positions in the organization will remain unchanged.

Mortillaro said he plans to use existing budget dollars allocated to his former position to avoid additional costs.
