San Andreas, CA — During a closed session yesterday the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors voted to extend an “offer of appointment” to one of the candidates seeking to be the next County Administrative Officer.
Board Clerk Diane Severud announced afterwards, “The board voted unanimously to direct staff to extend an offer of appointment to a successful candidate. If accepted, and after completion of a background check, the name will be released, and staff will bring forward a contract, and resolution, memorializing the appointment.”
The motion to hire the unidentified individual was made by Supervisor Benjamin Stopper and seconded by Gary Tofanelli. It is the second person that has been offered the position. Outgoing CAO Tim Lutz departed in December for a job in Tulare County after serving one-and-a-half years as CAO. Following his exit, Manuel Lopez has been serving as interim CAO.
