After 8 months, the Walton County Board of Commissioners has finally chosen a new County Administrator.
The interim administrator, Gerry Demers has filled the role since Greg Kisela's departure last May.
His name is Robert Halfhill and he is the current Public Works Director for Charlotte County, Florida. Halfhill's resume boasts 21 years of government administrative experience to the board.
After an extensive vote that included each Commissioner ranking their top three candidates, Halfhill was selected as the top candidate, with Jackson County's Administrator, Ted Lakey, in 2nd place, and former Walton County Commissioner, Larry Jones, in 3rd place.
The county will now move into contract negotiations with Halfhill.
