"How Shelby County Phased in the County Manager Form of Government"
LWVGB January Membership Meeting
Thursday, January 25
Homewood Library
1721 Oxmoor Road
6:00 P.M.

Do all counties have the same type of administrative operations?  There has been “talk” periodically of using a county manager in Jefferson County.  Would this help or would it add another layer in county government?  Come to the January LWVGB meeting to hear about Shelby County’s experience with hiring a County Manager to oversee department operations while the Commissioners serve as the County’s board of directors.

Ted Crockett, Shelby County Commissioner, and Alex Dudchock, Shelby County Manager, will discuss the issues the county grappled with and how they successfully phased in a County Manager. Jefferson County Commissioners have been invited to attend.
