Lee County begins their new administrator's search

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Lee County will begin the search for a new administrator right after they find an interim replacement for Administrator Alan Ours.

Commissioners say because the Administrative staff is at a minimum they'll need someone in place when Ours leaves at the end of the month. They'll use the Association of County Commissions of Georgia to find an interim director to run the county's operations while they launch a nationwide search for an Administrator. Commissioners say they'll look for someone with qualities similar to what Ours offered.

"This commission has had the pleasure of serving with Mr. Ours. We see what an affective administrator looks like, we see what an affective administrator can do, and I think it's given us a picture of the characteristics, the qualities and the traits that we'll be looking for especially in management style," said Lee County Commissioner Rick Muggridge.

Commissioners say the interim replacement could be with the county anywhere from six months to a year depending on how long it takes to find the right person for the job. Commissioners say after finding the interim they'll look for a company to aid in their search.
