PRESCOTT - Yavapai County Supervisors are expected to convene into Executive Session during their meeting on Monday to discuss filling the seat of former Finance Director John Zander.
Zander, who was appointed by supervisors to the position in 2006, retired Nov. 1.
The county received 13 applications for the position, according to County Administrator Phil Bourdon.
"We have gone through reviewing the applications and the interview process and have narrowed it down," Bourdon said. "The board has a candidate they need to discuss and if they decide to appoint that person, they can do that in the follow up to the Executive Session."
The new finance director is expected to start within three to four weeks after supervisors announce their choice, Bourdon said.
Supervisors will also consider a request from the Camp Verde Detention Center for the authorization to purchase a new boiler for the facility at a cost of $11,890.68. The center's current boiler is out of service and it would cost the center around $8,000 to get the boiler back up and running. The boiler provides hot water for the center's laundry service.
Supervisors are scheduled to meet at 9 a.m. at the Yavapai County Administration Services Verde Valley Complex in Cottonwood. The meeting can be viewed via teleconference at the Yavapai County Administrative Services Building at 1015 Fair Street in Prescott.
Also on the agenda:
Consider an approval for a Professional Services Contract between the county and Cardno Inc. for design services for the Prescott Country Club Area Drainage Improvements, not to exceed $34,190.
