Ontario County will start the new year with a new Sustainability and Solid Waste Management Department and a new director of that department.
The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Thursday to endorse the recommendations of a search committee, County Administrator Mary Krause and the board’s Planning & Environmental Quality Committee to name Carla Jordan of Victor to the position, effective Jan. 1. Her starting salary will be $97,282.
The new department will be staffed with employees now working for the county’s Planning Department and at the Ontario County Landfill. Two employees have been transferred to the new department from the planning department, along with eight employees in the public works department who work at the landfill.
In a news release issued Friday, Krause said the board approved forming the new department in November and voted Thursday night to name Jordan to head the department.
