Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The Director of Information Technologies incumbent resigned and his last day of employment with the County was September 11, 2019.  The Director of Human Resources conducted an extra help Director of Information Technologies recruitment which did not yield any candidates with the appropriate level of technical, leadership, and public sector experience.  Therefore, it is recommended that William O’Neill, the County’s current Registrar of Voters be assigned additional duties to provide oversight of the Department of Information Technologies while Human Resources conducts a competitive recruitment and selection process to replace the Director of Information Technologies.  Based on Mr. O’Neill’s resume, he has extensive information technology and leadership experience to perform the additional duties.  Therefore, it is recommended that he receive a monthly stipend in the amount of $2,920.67, which constitutes the difference of his current salary (step 5) and step 3 of the Director of Information Technologies salary range.

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board can choose to reject this recommendation and direct Human Resources to identify different options.
