$143K in state money will pay for new Clallam appraiser

April 29th, 2014 - 5:23am

(Port Angeles The Clallam County assessor's office will use state grant money to hire an additional appraiser, replacing a long time employee who died earlier this year.

Assessor Pam Rushton says her office also needs help to catch up after the unexpected death of deputy assessor Mike Hopf.

County commissioners yesterday voted to approve Rushton's request for a full-time appraiser for up to two and half years. The county will use $143-thousand dollars in new money from the state's Annual Revaluation Grant program to pay for the position.

Rushton says she had to reorganize her office after Hopf's death and that has taken appraisers from field work. The department is also shorthanded to catch up on additional work load due to installation of new software and equipment needed to comply with state mandates.
