The Deschutes County Board of Commissioners reopened its hunt Wednesday for a new county administrator.
The Prothman Co. of Bellevue, Wash., continues as the recruitment firm, but the county will pay no additional fees for the ongoing search. The county made offers to two candidates in fall 2012: one withdrew and the other failed to reach an agreement with the county.
The fall candidates rose from a second pool of applicants; the first pool, in March 2012, yielded no candidates.
Tom Anderson is serving as interim county administrator, a post he inherited from Erik Kropp on Oct. 29. The last full-time county administrator, Dave Kanner, was fired by the commission in August 2011.
The county has invited interested candidates to visit either the county or Prothman Co. websites to learn more about the position and recruitment process. Prothman is scheduled to review applications March 3.
