Aiken's LeDuc Tapped as Interim Administrator

web posted April 12, 2011

EDGEFIELD – The Edgefield County Council held a special called meeting Monday night and after convening in executive session emerged to announce they were hiring an interim administrator on a temporary basis until the new administrator position can be advertised, the candidates vetted, and the top pick hired. Former City Manager of Aiken, Roger LeDuc, was tapped for the position on a 3-1 vote with Councilman Willie Bright abstaining. Councilman Norman Dorn voted no.

Chairman Dean Campbell stated prior to the vote that an interim administrator was not a position that had to be advertised for as the full time administrator's position will. Chairman Campbell stated that there will be a contract, which should be made available soon, but there will be no benefits, severance pay, and the contract can be terminated at anytime without any repercussions fiscally for the county.

Mr. LeDuc will be paid $50 an hour for his services not to exceed 40 hours a week. Some weeks may include fewer hours.

Mr. LeDuc was the City Manager for Aiken from 1998 until retiring in 2011. He was the Public Works Director from 1986 until 1998. Prior to that he was the Public Works Director for the City of North Augusta from 1981 through 1986 and an Engineering Consultant in the Chicago area from 1972 until 1981.

Mr. LeDuc stated he looked forward to working with the county council in the upcoming months to during the budget process and delving into the budget currently before the council. With just minutes on the job, he could not offer any further comments on the position.

He will started work immediately.
