LOCKPORT— Niagara County is looking for a new county manager to replace Jeffrey Glatz who handed in his resignation recently and will retire shortly.
As long ago as late Spring last year there were rumblings about 20http://southbuffalonews.com5 being Glatz’s final year with the county.
Now the membership of the Niagara County Manager search committee has been finalized, Niagara County Legislature Chairman Wm. Keith McNall, R-Lockport, announced.
The addition of Lockport teacher Kevin Clark, who has been a high school instructor for 35 years, rounds out the eight-member committee.
Clark, one of two community members appointed, joins Legislators John Syracuse, R-Newfane, who chairs the committee, Tony Nemi, R-Lockport, Michael A. Hill, R-Middleport, Dennis F. Virtuoso, D-Niagara Falls, Jason A. Zona, D-Niagara Falls, Owen T. Steed, D-Niagara Falls, and Niagara Falls restaurateur Michael Capizzi, the other community member advising lawmakers on the search.
“When your community asks you to volunteer and to help improve the lives and experience of county residents, it’s a duty and an obligation,” Clark said. “Our county taxpayers and our county workforce deserve effective leadership, and I know this committee will work to achieve that result.”
Clark, who is also Lockport High School’s varsity swimming coach, serves on the boards of directors of the Lockport Family YMCA and the Lockport Schools Federal Credit Union, and the board of trustees of New Directions Youth and Family Services.
While the committee will make recommendations, it is up to the Republican controlled legislature to make the final pick.
