MIKE BENTON PROMOTED TO COUNTY MANAGER

September 22, 2015

Mike BentonLast night, after an Executive Session on “Personnel” lasting more than 40 minutes, the BOC voted to promote Mike Benton to the position of County Manager. He will be paid $75,000 per year, a raise of $20,000 from his current position of CFO and interim County Manager.

It is presumed that his new title and salary take effect immediately as he has been filling the county manager’s position since the termination of Karen Degges on July 23, 2015.

    OH, YES!! I SAW THIS VACANCY POSTED IN ALL THE PAPERS FOR MULTIPLE WEEKS.

    I hear he is a very “out in the field” type of manager. On several occasions, while volunteering at animal control, I have seen him come and talk to the ladies at AC. He even took the time to introduce himself to me. I hope he is a positive improvement to Jasper County. You need some positive for your tax dollars.

  3. I stayed until the end of the meeting and they said it was effective immediately.

    Too bad they didn’t fire Debria and Gregory last night too.
