County allows for acting administrator

YATES COUNTY--The Yates County Legislature approved an amendment to its local law allowing the appointment of an acting county administrator. The action took place during a special meeting Monday, Dec. 7 following a public hearing where nobody spoke. The law comes after the departure of former longtime County Administrator Sarah Purdy, who left the position last week to accept a job as city manager in Ogdensburg.
The new amendment authorizes the legislature to appoint one or more people to serve as acting county administrator when the office is vacant, absent or if the current administrator is unable to perform their duties. According to the resolution, any person appointed as an acting county administrator will only have the powers and duties of the county administrator as granted and directed to them by the county legislature, as well as any other additional and related powers and duties that are granted. If the appointee is a department head, they will be supervised and directly report to the county legislature.
Any person serving as the acting county administrator does not have to possess the minimum qualifications prescribed for the office, with work hours, schedule and compensation being determined by the legislature at its discretion. The acting county administrator will serve at the legislature's will, but in no event is its service allowed to extend beyond the time when the county administrator is no longer absent, unable to act or when the vacancy is filled.
The government operations committee also discussed their upcoming discussions regarding how to proceed with the vacant county administrator position. County Chairman Tim Dennis said the legislature plans to meet with a facilitator following their regular legislative session Monday, Dec. 14. The management team will meet with the facilitator the following Tuesday morning, Dec. 15. Dennis added they wish to discuss what the county would like to do as far as short-term and long-term options, with some short-term options including to see if they will need an acting administrator, and if so, how many acting administrators they would need.
