Lake County’s administrator has resigned after less than one year on the job.
Alan Rosen submitted his resignation letter earlier this month, citing family concerns.
Lake County has now begun the process of finding an interim county manager.
Rosen wants to continue to be paid $1,557 through March to act as an on-call consultant for the county. The job he is leaving paid $185,000 per year. He has indicated his resignation won’t be effective if his on-call services are not accepted.
Rosen began his work in public service in 2005, supporting the Broward County Board of County Commissioners with budget and management analysis. In 2009, Mr. Rosen acted as a financial systems manager for Fulton County, Georgia, where he transitioned the county to outcome-based budgeting. In 2012, he embarked on a journey to Washoe County, Nevada, overseeing its annual budget.
After spending a couple years consulting for local governments, performing process improvements, organizational analysis and financial management best practices, Rosen joined the City of Port Orange. He served the citizens of Port Orange for six years, first as the interim assistant city manager, then assistant city manager and finally as the interim city manager.
