The Deschutes County Board of Commissioners announced that neither of the two candidates they offered the County Administrator position to accepted the position.

 

Commission Chair Tony DeBone says five candidates came for interviews and a public reception in September, and the top two were identified:  “Two of them really fit what we were looking for. The three commissioners were real comfortable with two of them. And in negotiations, one of them backed out for personal reasons, family. And another one we just didn't get to negotiating a contract."

 

DeBone says the commission has decided not to pursue the other three candidates, and will be meeting on Wednesday to discuss what action they want to take next.
