After more than three decades of service, Lisa Grosse is retiring as the Purchasing Director/Administrative Assistant to the Livingston County Administrator, effective today.
“I’m proud and blessed to have served the citizens of Livingston County over the past 30 plus years alongside the County Administrator, County Department Heads, and the Board of Supervisors,” stated Grosse.
In January 1990, Grosse began her career with Livingston County as the Administrative Assistant to County Administrator Dominic Mazza. Upon Mr. Mazza’s retirement, she continued to serve in this vital administrative position under County Administrator Ian M. Coyle until her retirement.
Grosse was a Certified Public Procurement Buyer through the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing and was a member of the New York State Association of Municipal Purchasing Officials. The main duties of her position were to develop and implement a County Purchasing Policy that aligned with all of the requirements of New York State law.
In addition to her purchasing responsibilities, Grosse was responsible for a multitude of other administrative tasks, including overseeing the County’s annual insurance needs, assisting County Departments with processing insurance claims, and monitoring all insurance company reimbursements for vehicle accidents and property damage. Such duties and responsibilities are truly key in the smooth operation of county government.
“I truly enjoyed assisting County Departments with their various needs while always trying to ensure the desired products and services were properly procured to keep each Department and the overall County running efficiently. In my role at the County, I always strived to keep the interests of taxpayers in the forefront of my mind,” said Grosse.
“On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Lisa for her many years of dedicated service to Livingston County,” said David L. LeFeber, Chairman of the Livingston County Board of Supervisors. “While we will miss working alongside her, I have no doubt that her impact will continue to be felt for a long time to come.”
Coyle stated, “Lisa has been an excellent advisor and friend to so many of us. She has been such an asset to my administration and the Livingston County community as a whole. I have enjoyed working with a true professional like Lisa through the years, and now I want to wish her only the very best in her well-deserved retirement.”
