Lyon County Board of Commissioners Special Meeting Update 09/26/2022: Andrew Haskin Appointed as Interim County Manager

Lyon County Board of Commissioners Meeting Update 09/26/2022

On Monday, September 26th, at a special meeting of the Lyon County Board of Commissioners, the board voted to appoint Andrew Haskin as the Interim County Manager. Mr. Haskin has served Lyon County for the past year as the Community Development Director. He has an extensive background in economic development, spending almost 8 years with Northern Nevada Development Authority. Andrew is a graduate of the University of Nevada-Reno with a Master of Business Administration and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and Marketing. The motion to appoint Mr. Haskin as interim County Manager was made by Commissioner Gray and approved 5-0.

The Board of County Commissioners also deliberated the next steps to recruit and hire a permanent County Manager. At this time, the Commissioners motioned to bring the item back for further review at another date. Among the topics of discussion were whether to advertise the position internally or conduct a national search, along with the possibility of hiring Andrew Haskin in the future as the permanent County Manager based on his performance as interim and feedback from staff. The motion was made by Commissioner Henderson to take no action at this time but the board reserved the right to bring the item back on future agendas.

The meeting video will be posted shortly on our YouTube Page. The agenda and backup information is available for review.
