Livingston County names new Purchasing Director/Administrative Assistant

The Livingston County Board of Supervisors has named Ashley Scutt as the new Purchasing Director/Administrative Assistant to the County Administrator, effective April 4, 2022. She succeeds Lisa Grosse, who recently retired after more than 30 years of public service to the County.

Scutt will oversee the process of acquiring goods and services across all County departments and operations. In addition to her purchasing responsibilities, she will be 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. Over the past decade, she worked for the Livingston County Board of Supervisors as the Confidential Secretary to the Clerk of the Board and as the Secretary to County Administrator Ian M. Coyle.

“I am very excited to transition into this new role and look forward to working with fellow Department Heads and Board Members,” stated Scutt. “This new position will allow me to learn more about the needs and operations of various departments. My goal is to help them properly procure their desired products and services while keeping the taxpayer top of mind.”

“Ashley is the perfect choice to fill this position and lead Livingston County into the future,” said David L. LeFeber, Chairman of the Livingston County Board of Supervisors.  “She is a hard-working, dependable team player who is always willing to lend a hand and share a smile.”

County Administrator Ian M. Coyle stated, “Ashley’s previous roles with Livingston County have allowed her to gain a comprehensive understanding of county government operations. Her unique perspective will serve her well as she focuses on improved processes, new technologies, and increased efficiencies related to our purchasing policies and procedures. I look forward to seeing her continued growth at Livingston County.”

Scutt lives in Conesus with her husband and two children. When not in the office, she enjoys camping and spending time outdoors with her family.
