CLALLAM: Commissioners poised to name new county administrator


PORT ANGELES — The public could know by early next week who the new Clallam County administrator will be, county Commissioner Mike Chapman said Friday.

Four candidates, all experienced county department managers are contenders for the position.

The call for candidates began after Administrator Jim Rumpeltes resigned in April to take a job in Arizona.

Tuesday is Rumpeltes’ last day as county administrator.

Community Development Director Bob Martin, Juvenile Services Director Pete Peterson, Road Engineer Steve Hauff or Undersheriff Dan Engelbertson will be selected as the commissioners’ top choice.
