SURRY – Due to the upcoming retirement of county administrator, Mr. Tyrone W. Franklin, the recruitment Springsted | Waters, Inc., has been contracted to assist the Surry County Board of Supervisors with its search for a new County Administrator, according to a press release from the county.  

A public meeting has been scheduled in the General District Courtroom in the Surry County Government Center on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 at 6:00pm. The public meeting will be facilitated by Mr. Steven Miner, Vice-President of Springsted | Waters. The purpose of the public forum is to gather input from citizens regarding the attributes, skills and other traits which they feel are important to have in their next County Administrator.

Results from the session will be utilized in the development of a recruitment profile.  The profile will be published in a recruitment brochure and distributed to potential applicants so that they will better understand the attributes desired by the County in its next County Administrator.  Subsequently, the profile will be used as a tool to screen the pool of applicants for the position, resulting in a group of semi-finalists who most closely meet these expressed desires.  

Recruitment profiles typically include such things as the desired education and experience, personal and professional characteristics, as well as work history, achievements, skills and knowledge and any other traits which may be seen as important to successful functioning as the County’s Chief Administrative Officer serving an elected Board of Supervisors and, through them, the public.

The session will be conducted on an informal basis by Mr. Miner for Springsted | Waters, who will compile the input into a draft profile to be considered for approval by the Board of Supervisors at a later date.  

The Board and Mr. Miner invite all who wish to provide input on the profile to attend the meeting.
