Trumbull loses county administrator candidate
Months of planning and selection have been derailed by the decision of Mike Matas, Lake County budget director, to stay with his current employer and not become Trumbull County administrator and purchasing director.
Matas wrote an email this week to officials in the commissioners office saying he was "formally submitting my resignation, effective immediately, due to a family matter."
Matas, of Cortland, was due to begin his new job in Trumbull County March 19.
Matas was to be paid $95,000 per year in 2018 for Trumbull County. His salary in Lake County last year was $97,502. With his 2018 cost of living increase, he is scheduled to earn $99,050, the Lake County Auditor's Office says.
Attempts to reach Trumbull County commissioners Mauro Cantalamessa and Dan Polivka this morning for comment were unsuccessful.
