RENO — White Pine County could soon have its first county manager.
The White Pine County Board of Commissioners voted Wednesday to form a committee that will look at whether White Pine should overhaul its county management.
The county has set aside $120,000 for salary and benefits to hire a manager since 2009, according to the Ely Times.
Commission Chairman John Lampros has endorsed the idea, saying it would help White Pine leaders run the local government more like a business.
The state oversaw White Pine’s financial decisions for four years starting in 2005 after the county ran out of cash.
