County finalizes interim job pact with former DHS head
The Mesa County Commission this morning finalized an agreement with former Department of Human Services Director Tom Papin to become the interim county administrator.
The agreement calls for Papin, who will start Jan. 3, to receive $10,500 a month in salary. The county also will furnish Papin with a vehicle, a laptop computer, a cell phone and housing at The Commons.
Under the terms of the agreement, Papin and the county must give each other 30 days notice if either one wishes to terminate Papin’s employment within the first three months. After three months, neither party has to give advanced notice to terminate Papin’s employment.
Papin, 65, will take over for Acting County Administrator Stefani Conley, who took over the job in July when Jon Peacock resigned. Conley has said she’s ready to return to her duties as the assistant county administrator.
