Mono County, California, January 29, 2013 – At a special meeting today, the Mono County Board of Supervisors appointed Lynda Salcido as “Acting County Administrative Officer (CAO).”  A long-term county employee, Ms. Salcido is also Mono County’s Director of Public Health, a position she has held for 13 years. She will serve in the additional capacity of Acting CAO following the last day of employment of the county’s current CAO, James Arkens, and until an “Interim CAO” is recruited and appointed, which may take a few weeks. Mr. Arkens was recently hired as CAO for Sutter County in central California.

In terms of next steps in the hiring process for a permanent CAO, Marshall Rudolph, County Counsel, explains, “The Board anticipates that the Interim CAO will be recruited from outside the County and will not be a candidate for permanent appointment as CAO. The Interim CAO will serve while the County recruits for a permanent CAO and until the individual ultimately hired as permanent CAO takes office.”  This process is estimated to take approximately four months.
