As of July 1, 2017, Jones County will have a new Community Services director.
During the March 28 Board of Supervisors meeting, the board took action to hire Lucia Herman. She will replace current Director Deb Schultz who is retiring at the end of this fiscal year. Herman is currently the county’s case management supervisor.
The board approved the hiring, 4-1, with Supervisor Wayne Manternach opposed. The motion included hiring Herman at the same salary as Schultz, $58,994, with the previously approved 3.5 percent increase.
