Prospective applicants to be Warren County’s new Finance Department director have until noon on June 15 to apply.
Linda Hillis has announced her retirement after 22 years. She currently oversees the county’s $86 million annual budget and has a staff of nine.
The county Financial Management Committee reviewed a proposed ad for the open position.
Prospective applicants shall have a minimum of a bachelor of science degree from an accredited college or university with at least 18 quarter hours or equivalent semester hours in accounting, or at least two years of acceptable experience in a related position.
The director’s responsibilities include, but are not limited to, maintaining the purchasing, payroll, budgeting, accounting, and cash financial management system for Warren County.
“If we could get somebody who’s a CPA (certified public accountant) that would be good,” said Road Superintendent Levie Glenn.
Warren County Executive Herschel Wells said, “If they’re a CPA, they probably don’t want the job.”
“You’d be paying them a lot more money, too,” said Commissioner Tommy Savage.
Financial Management Committee members will be tasked with reviewing applications and conducting personal interviews of those selected.
Once advertised, applications will be accepted at Workforce Solutions located at 310 N. Chancery Street.
