Chatham County began its search for a permanent county manager to the fill the slot vacated when Renee Paschal retired in September.

Dan LaMontagne, the county’s assistant manager, has been handling the job on an interim basis since then.

The county began advertising the vacancy this week, seeking applicants for the position and asking interested applicants to send a comprehensive resume and cover letter to the county by Jan. 15.

The expected salary range is between $126,163 and $160,858.

“We are intentionally doing an aggressive timeline,” Chatham County Board of Commissioners Chairman Mike Dasher said. “I think we recognize this is a position that needs to be filled with all due speed.”

The commissioners will likely begin reviewing resumes soon after the Jan. 15 deadline. The N.C. Association of County Commissioners will be assisting the county during the selection process along with the county’s Human Resources Department
Chatham County Commissioner Diana Hales told the News + Record this week the county may consider hiring an outside organization to further assist, but that decision has not yet been made.

Dasher said he hopes the county will begin conducting interviews as early as the first week of February. He also said he hopes the county will be able to make a preliminary offer to its preferred candidate in late February or early March.
