JEFFERSON: County asked to examine efficiency


Some residents are asking Jefferson County commissioners to review county government efficiency.

Dan Titterness, R-Port Townsend, broached forming an efficiency review committee with his colleagues Monday.

But the idea met with a tepid reaction from commissioners Glen Huntingford, R-Chimacum, and Richard Wojt, D-Port Townsend.

County Administrator Charles Saddler was not too keen on the idea either.

Saddler said he would like government to work smoother, but he didn’t think a committee would be an effective tool for change.

Instead, he proposed having Community Development Department and Health Department Environmental Health office employees learn from their peers in other counties.
