After serving in a variety of leadership positions with five different local governments over 30 years, including as Sutter County’s top manager for the past two years, County Administrator Scott Mitnick has informed the Board of Supervisors that he will be retiring from public service. He is pursuing a position in the private sector. His last regular day in the office will be February 15, 2019.

“It is with a heavy heart and mixed emotions that I submit this resignation notice” stated Mitnick in a January 15, 2019 memo to the Board of Supervisors. “It has been an honor and privilege to work for the Board in general; and, for each of you individually. Your leadership and support has been unquestioned, consistent, and greatly appreciated throughout my tenure.”

“Scott brought a lot of professionalism to Sutter County,” Board Chair Mat Conant said. “From the beginning, he has done exactly as the Board requested. He led the way in helping the Board establish written Countywide Goals, Top Priorities, Board Norms, and a variety of other important public policies and action items. He established a process for the Board to provide enhanced accountability to the public. These are a few examples of the important steps he helped the County take at this time in our history.”

The Board of Supervisors will discuss selection of an Interim County Administrator and future recruitment options at an upcoming Board meeting.
