Webb headed home to serve

Staff report
Roosevelt County Manager Charlene Webb will be returning home to Grant County to serve as its county manager, according to Grant County officials.
Webb, who has been Roosevelt County’s manager since 2001, said she will discuss the move with the commission at a special meeting Thursday and has not determined her last day with the county yet.

Webb was one of 11 applicants considered for the position.
She said Tuesday she appreciated “always having a supportive board of commissioners.” She’s currently at a salary of $81,440 and her contract was renewed in March for two years by the commission.

Grant County officials say they are still in negotiation with Webb but the position’s salary depends on the applicant’s experience and is in the range of $80,000 to $120,000.

Webb is a native of Grant County and has said she applied to the position because she wants to be closer to home and her family while furthering her career.
