Susan Morrow of Pacific Grove is the new general manager of the Los Osos Community Services District.
She will assume her new duties June 7. Mitch Cooney has been interim general manager of the district since Dan Gilmore resigned from that position Jan. 31.
Morrow has been a government manager with various communities including Pacific Grove, Simi Valley, Aliso Viejo, Torrance and Malibu. She has also owned and operated her own geologic consulting firm.
“After a long and extensive search, we are gratified that we able to hire Susan,” said Marshall Ochylski, president of the district’s board of directors. “She brings a great set of skills and experience to the job.”
Morrow was hired Thursday after a closed session meeting of the board. Her salary will be $90,000 a year, Ochylski said.
In the interim, Sandi Woods, the district’s billing clerk and bookkeeper, will act as general manager. The district has 11 full-time employees and provides water, drainage, solid waste and emergency services for residents of Los Osos/Baywood Park.
