The search for a new Deschutes County Administrator is underway. Deschutes County Deputy Administrator Erik Krupp is filling in on an interim basis after Commissioners fired Dave Kanner back in August. Krupp has told Commissioners he's not interested in the position, so a national search has begun. Krupp expects to fill in for about six months. “There's a high probability that the person will be coming from outside the area, so he has to move out here, so I’m expecting it probably will be a springtime appointment.” Commissioners decided to fire Kanner because of concerns over his sometimes abrasive management style.
