County commissioners appoint new admin

Lane County Commissioners announced last Thursday their choice to fill the role of county administrator, following several days of interviews and lengthy discussion. Steve Mokrohisky, age 36, currently serves as county manager for Douglas County, Nev., where he’s worked since 2011. According to a news release from Lane County Government, Mokrohisky spent 10 years with Milwaukee County, Wisc., in a variety of positions: director of IT Business Services, associate director of Parks and Public Works, deputy director of Communications, deputy Chief of Staff, and Chief of Staff. “Steve brings a wealth of experience and skill to Lane County,” commission chair Pat Farr said. “He will be an excellent fit with our community and staff. The search for a new administrator began last year after former county administrator Liane Richardson was fired after an incident involving take-home pay. The search process, county commissioners indicated, was a long and difficult process. “This was a difficult decision,” Farr said. “We took additional time to make sure we have the right person for the job. Mr. Mokrohisky is exceptionally well qualified, and we look forward to bringing him on board.” According to the news release, commissioners voted four to one to delegate authority to Howard Schussler, interim human resources director, to negotiate the final details of the offer and contract. Commissioner Sid Leiken voted against the motion. The Lane County Administrator directs and coordinates overall management of the County government in accordance with policies set by the board of commissioners. The county administrator reports directly to commissioners. Tweet
