Seneca Supers Approve 4-Year Term For Manager

Seneca County Supervisors Tuesday night unanimously approved a local law outlining the responsiblities and guidlines for the County Manager’s position. The law changes the term of the County Manager from 2 years to 4 years, and outlines minimum qualifications the county manager must meet to be eligible to serve. It also dictates that the person serving as County Manager must live in Seneca County within 90 days of taking office. Although the law was adopted by the Board of Supervisors, it will go to a November 6th referendum because of the 4 year term length. Voter approval is required because most supervisors, who appoint and have administrative authority over the County Manager, serve just a two year term. Current County Manager Sharon Secor is retiring at the end of the year.
