Brings 24 years of experience serving Lake County communities in public agencies

County of Lake logoThe Lake County Board of Supervisors is pleased to announce the appointment of Scott Harter to succeed Jan Coppinger as Special Districts Administrator.

Harter holds a Civil Engineering degree from California State University, Chico, and has served in public agencies in Lake County since 1996.

“We are excited to see Scott step up to this new challenge,” noted Moke Simon, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors.  “His varied background with County and City agencies has been a great asset in recent years, and this will be an opportunity for him to expand his contributions even more, while providing a sense of continuity for Special Districts’ staff.”

In twenty-four years, Scott has served as a Civil Engineer for both the County and City of Lakeport, taken on interim responsibilities in Community Development and Information Technology, and, most recently, overseen projects of great County import as Deputy Special Districts Administrator.

“The retirement of Jan Coppinger affects the County in a number of ways,” acknowledged Simon.  “Scott has worked right alongside her, and understands the void that she leaves.  Scott is well qualified to take up the reins, quickly identify gaps, and move the Special Districts Administration forward in a positive direction.”
