Five candidates for the Deschutes County Administrator position are in town today for panel interviews.

 

Interim County Administrator Erik Kropp says the candidates; Donald Bohn, Assistant County Administrator in  Washington County, Oregon, Dana Hlavac, Deputy County Manager for Mohave County, Arizona, Michael McNees, Chief Operating Officer for USA Track and Field and County Administrator, Blane County, Idaho, David Meriwether, County Administrator, Hood River County and Gail Shibley, Administrator, Center for Health Protection, from Portland, are all extremely well qualified.  "Anytime you hire in a position, the problem you want to have is you want a difficult choice. You want to say, 'Wow, any of the candidates would be excellent' and you want it to be a hard choice that's a good sign."

 

Kropp says the candidates will be interviewed by the Board of Commissioners and three other panels today, and depending on background checks, could make a decision in a couple of weeks.  But, he says, it could be longer before an announcement is made because of negotiations.
