DOUGLAS COUNTY, GA - A proposal made by Douglas County New Administrator, Sharon D, to recalibrate its organizational structure was approved on the August 17th Board of Commissioner’s Meeting.
This discussion is an extended session from the previous meeting on August 17, the approval was finally made after long planning and deliberation. The issue was also brought up during the recent County leadership retreat.
The county Chairman, Romona Jackson said this reorganization was long overdue, but now is the right time to move Douglas County to the extraordinary. The residents can expect great things to come in the future.
In the old structure, County Administrator Subadan, supervised over 25 Department and Agency Directors that reports to her directly. The new structure now has only 11 departments that will directly report to the County Administrator. This includes the Deputy County Administrator, a Chief Improvement Officer, Assistant County Administrator, and a Chief Technology Officer as a part of the leadership team.
Almost all Douglas County current employees become the current leaders in senior roles with these changes.
Vice-chair and district 2 commissioner Kelly G Robinson said Douglas County is changing and looking to achieve better efficiencies. This recalibration of the government is the right move.
County Administrator Subandan announced the restructure during a staff meeting, after carefully listening to each department of the government's opinion.
Subandan said she spent her first 90 days king to evaluate the organization, meeting with stakeholders and partners. After that, she decided restructuring the organization is an important move. She further stated that she is grateful for the support from the Board of Commissioners.
