San Andreas, CA — The Calaveras County Community Development Agency has been authorized to reorganize and in the process fill some much needed positions.
The reorganization has been in the works since county officials decided to merge the Building and Planning departments back in 2005 to streamline the building process.
Agency Director Stephanie Moreno was hired earlier this year to lead the departments through the merger.
Monday the Board of Supervisors agreed to create three out of four of Moreno´s requested new positions. The agency will get a new program supervisor, planner and a plan checker. The board held off on hiring someone in the Code Compliance Department, although the position would have helped with Planning Department functions as well.
Interviews are underway for a separate planner position OK´d by the board some time ago. Officials will interview four final candidates for that job on Friday.
