El Dorado County sticks with Knorr as CAO

Griffin Rogers

El Dorado County has ended its search for a new chief administrative officer — at least for the time being. Pamela Knorr will remain the county’s CAO for the interim period of one year, according to an announcement Tuesday.

The Board of Supervisors made the decision unanimously, allowing Knorr to keep her top administrative position at a salary of $185,660.76 per year.

“I’m looking forward to working with this board,” she said, following a closed session meeting Tuesday. “I think we have an exceptional group here, including our county counsel and all of our department heads. So I’m looking forward to taking the county through this transition for the next 12 months.” Knorr has been interim CAO since November. At first she was the temporary replacement for Terri Daly, who served the county while reports of employee dissatisfaction and imminent funding shortfalls ran rampant. Now she’s a longer-term solution. Before taking on CAO duties, Knorr was the human resources director for El Dorado County.
