The Iroquois County Board (Tuesday) voted 8-4, with several members absent, to reconfigure the Finance Department.
It’s now known as the Finance Center.
Amanda Longfellow will manage the center at a salary of $45,000. Jill Johnson will assume the position of Chief Deputy. She’ll be paid $27, 250.
The vote came after executive session.
Board Chairman John Shure calls it a new start.........
Shure said the Board is confident in moving forward with Longfellow and Johnson.
Iroquois County’s been without a finance leader since Anita Speckman left for a similar position in Kankakee County earlier this year.
