NORWICH – The Chenango County probation department announced Wednesday that it would be going through many changes in its staff over the next few weeks as its probation director, Laureen Clark, and the probation supervisor will be retiring.
Clark has expressed the urgency of getting the positions re-filled as quickly as possible as the current probation supervisor will be leaving at the end of next week. Clarke said they would need to have the position filled no later than Sept. 2.
County Supervisor Jack Cook, R-Greene, expressed concern that this would create a vacuum in leadership within the probation department and asked if the positions would be able to be filled in time.
“There are other members of the department that are ready to move up to these positions,” said Clarke.
