The Grand County Council in a split vote appointed Quinn Hall as interim clerk-auditor at Tuesday’s meeting.
Hall has a varied work history, ranging from commercial river guide since 1990 to a geographic information specialist and environmental consultant for Uintah Paleontological Associates. He still performs both jobs.
He has a Master’s degree in Natural Resources and a bachelor’s degree in English.
Hall’s term begins Feb. 18 and ends Jan. 4. The clerk-auditor is one of the offices up for election in 2020. Hall replaces Chris Baird, who was promoted to become the next county administrator when Ruth Dillon retires in mid-March.
Hall in his cover letter said he is “detail oriented and adept at accurate record keeping and regulatory compliance.”
Hall said “my background in English and natural resources “means I’m comfortable communicating in both written and visual formats and I’m capable of collecting accurate data and representing results.”
The position pays roughly $75,000 per year.
