LEE COUNTY GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION CHANGES
Lee County, NC — August 10, 2022 — Over the past couple of years Lee County Government has made strategic investments in improving and expanding county facilities and amenities and has moved forward with capital projects such as the new library slated for OT Sloan Park and the Multi-Sportsplex. In addition to these exciting projects, Lee County Government has continued to implement organizational improvements to enhance support for departments, provide additional project oversight, and meet the needs of the public. With the growth in the community and corresponding needs of the public, Lee County is busier than ever.
When the Lee County Board of Commissioners approved the budget for fiscal year 2023, the approval included the reorganization of Lee County’s leadership positions to add two full-time assistant county manager positions dedicated to supporting designated internal departments.
Lisa Minter, former Assistant County Manager/Finance Director, is now Assistant County Manager of Governmental Support and Deputy County Attorney/Clerk to the Board of Commissioners Jennifer Gamble is now the Assistant County Manager of Operational Services.
Candace Iceman, previously Assistant Finance Director, has taken on the role of Lee County’s Finance Director and Jen Waterhouse, formerly the Fiscal Recovery Manager, has taken on the role of Assistant Finance Director while continuing fiscal recovery responsibilities.
Hailey Hall, formerly the County’s Communications Specialist in the Administration Department, was appointed as the Clerk to the Board of Commissioners on August 8, 2022 and will continue to provide communications support on behalf of the County.
“The County has been preparing for upcoming growth in our county and part of that preparation has been a succession plan and developing internal talent to take on additional leadership and management roles,” County Manager Dr. John Crumpton said. “I’m excited for these individuals who have stepped up and agreed to take on these responsibilities, and I know each will do a great job.”
The Board of Commissioners also took action on August 8, 2022 to designate a position for a Deputy County Attorney along with a position to assist the current Pre-Trial Coordinator.
