Stutsman County tables auditor job description change

Regular meeting of the Stutsman County Commission reviews changes to the job description of the county auditor.

The Stutsman County Commission moved changes to the job description of the county auditor/chief operating officer and removing the interim status of the current auditor to its Dec. 21 meeting.

Jessica Alonge has been serving as an interim county auditor since October 2020 when Nicole Melland resigned from the position. Mark Klose, chairman of the commission, said Alonge has been doing a satisfactory job.

"The board has been pleased with the progress," he said.

But the commission declined to promote Alonge to a full-time auditor/chief operating officer position or adjust the job description until research is complete on the salary for the position, Klose said.

Changes to the auditor's job description were approved by the Stutsman County Personnel Committee and were presented to the commission. The new job description did not include changes in salary for the position. The commission decided to discuss the job description and salary as well as Alonge's promotion to the position of permanent auditor at its next meeting.


The commission did approve updates to the job descriptions of communications specialists, lead communications specialists, communication supervisor, directory of information technology and human resources director.

County commissioners also reappointed Keith Veil to the Jamestown Regional Airport Authority, Robert Martin to the Stutsman County Park Board, Tracey Johnk to the social services board, Tony Roorda to the Stutsman County Water Resource Board and Keith Lees to the weed board.

The Stutsman County Park Board approved a concessionaire contract with Lucas Dockter, doing business as NUMBERTWO, for the marina on the east side of the Jamestown Reservoir. The contract sets the annual rental fee at $1,200 per year.
