The Tompkins County Legislature appointed Lisa Holmes as county administrator at their Thursday, March 17 meeting.
Holmes has served as the interim county administrator since May 2021, following former Tompkins County Administrator Jason Molino’s departure. As county administrator, Holmes manages the county’s budget, oversees about 30 departments, and supervises and coordinates county government execution of procedures and policies handed down by the legislature.
“We have some big initiatives moving forward at the county level, including Reimagining Public Safety, adapting our work coming out of the pandemic, the merger of our health and mental health departments, and examining space needs and implementing a capital plan that best meets the needs of our staff and residents,” said Holmes, according to Ithaca Voice. “I look forward to working closely with the Legislature on these and other opportunities.”
Holmes is the first woman to be appointed to the position of county administrator. She has worked in county government since 1998.
