The Hall County Board of Commissioners has named Lisa Johnsa as the County’s second Assistant Administrator, a position necessitated by the area’s recent and projected growth.
Johnsa, whose role will include overseeing County policy, operations, budget and governance, will work on an interim basis in conjunction with current Assistant County Administrator Marty Nix, whose focus will concentrate on large County projects and special action items.
The dual Assistant County Administrator positions are a part of an overall restructuring plan to strengthen the County’s service to citizens as population numbers increase and development continues up the I-985 corridor.
“Lisa brings a wealth of knowledge to this position as she has witnessed the impact of growth on a community first-hand in her previous career,” Interim Hall County Administrator Jock Connell said. “I know that knowledge, along with her dedication to public service, will be beneficial to the County as a whole as we move the organization forward.”
Johnsa worked for Gwinnett County Government for over 30 years before retiring in 2009. During her tenure there, she served as Finance Director and Assistant County Administrator. In 2011, she served as the Interim Finance Director for Hall County.
“I am looking forward to serving the citizens of Hall County, a place where my family and I call home and a community that has incredible resources, opportunities and quality of life,” said Johnsa.
Johnsa and her husband Bill reside in Flowery Branch, where they have lived for over 23 years. They have two sons, ages 25 and 17.
Her first day with the County will be Oct. 9.
