MONTROSE – It was announced Wednesday afternoon that Montrose County Manager Rick Eckert will resign his position, effective May 16.
Eckert, who has been with the county since January 2013, will leave following the close of business on May 16.
The county announced Eckert’s resignation via press release late Wednesday. “I have enjoyed working with the best employees of my entire career in city and county government,” said Eckert. “In my opinion, they are Montrose County’s greatest asset. I will miss working with them, but I know the county will be in good hands with the professional service and attitudes these employees demonstrate.”
Eckert said he and his wife, Jan, are extremely grateful to the community for welcoming them with open arms, and that they cherish the friendships they have made in Montrose. At this time, Eckert has not announced his future plans.
Montrose County will launch a search for a new county manager as soon as possible.
