meeting on Monday, with just one item on the agenda.
The Board appointed Caitlyn Smith, of Turin, as the next Director of Human
Resources/Personnel Officer for Lewis County by a unanimous vote.
The appointment is effective July 22, and will fill the remainder of the six-year
term of current Director of Human Resources Chris Boulio, who will be retiring on
July 30. The term expires on August 18, 2023.
Mr. Boulio has held the position since August 18, 2017, when the county added a
Human Resources Director/Personnel Officer for county employees, minus the

and County each have had a Human Resource Director since the split in 2017.
Lewis County Sheriff Michael Carpinelli attended the meeting with two deputies.
During the public comment portion he asked if the legislators would be

Dolhof, Chairman of the Board, said the meeting was scheduled for the sole
