Thursday, March 19, 2015 — The veteran’s service officer position may be reorganized, just not as first proposed.
The Lassen County Board of Supervisors directed county staff to revise the job description where the position would be hired and appointed by the board.
Additionally, the veteran’s service officer will also report to the supervisors.
Currently, the position is managed under the department of health and social services, which according to county administrative officer, Richard Egan, was established by a county ordinance.
Other positions that are separate but are appointed by the board of supervisors, are the fair manager, director of child and support services and county counsel.
With the departure of former veterans service officer Todd Conner, health and social services director Melody Brawley presented a reorganization plan to the supervisors in December.
