Moffat County commissioners to consider personnel requests

Craig Press staff report

CRAIG — The Moffat County Board of County Commissioners will consider three personnel requests from the Human Resources Department when it meets at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22, at the Moffat County Courthouse, 221 W. Victory Way, Suite 130.

All three personnel requests, to be presented by Human Resources Director Lynnette Siedschlaw, deal with the Moffat County Clerk and Recorder’s Office and specifically refer to the positions of motor vehicle supervisor, chief deputy, and election coordinator.

The position of motor vehicle supervisor was eliminated when former Motor Vehicle Supervisor Tammy Raschke took office as Moffat County’s new clerk and recorder on Jan. 8, but now, Raschke is requesting the position be reinstated and that Clerk and Recorder Technician Stacy Morgan be promoted to the job.

If the request is approved by the BOCC, Raschke further asks that the position of clerk and recorder technician be eliminated.

The position of chief deputy was not included in the 2019 budget, but Raschke is asking it be reinstated and that current Senior Clerk and Recorder Technician Debbie Winder be promoted to the job. The move, if approved by commissioners, would eliminate the position of senior clerk and recorder technician.

Finally, the position of election coordinator is also open, and Raschke is proposing it be downgraded from election supervisor — a role formerly filled by Tori Pingley, who resigned Jan. 8 — to election coordinator, reducing the position from grade 22 to grade 19.

The latter two positions are crucial, as Raschke last week informed the city of Craig it would not be able to conduct the upcoming municipal election, as no one in her office had undergone the training required by the Colorado Secretary of State’s office to conduct an election.

The BOCC’s agenda for Tuesday also includes the following items:

  • Approval of the consent agenda.
  • Public comment, general discussion, and BOCC reports.
  • The November financial report, presented by Finance Director Mindy Curtis.
  • A update from Dorina Fredrickson, with the Craig Association of Realtors.
  • An organization update from Jennifer Holloway, executive director of the Craig Chamber of Commerce.

The BOCC’s next scheduled meeting is set for 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5.
