The Houston County Commission announced plans to vote on a salary offer for new Chief Administrative Officer Candidate William Dempsey.
The initial pay range was between $75 to $95,000 dollars with benefits.
County officials say Dempsey's previous pay, as vice president of Sony Dothan will not be a factor.
Houston County Chairman Mark Culver said, “Several of the candidates we talked to were making in previous employment, a lot more money than we were able to pay. We had the range, and as long as we stayed within the range, I think the commission was comfortable with the process.
The County Commission plans to vote on the position in the November 13th meeting, with the first day on the job starting in early December.
