Owen named chief deputy assessor

Webster County Supervisors have named a new Webster County chief deputy assessor.

Lori Owen was appointed to the position, with a salary increase from $49,472 to $51,946, by Assessor Angie Vinson. Vinson served as chief deputy before she became assessor in August.

Owen had been the assessor’s office manager.

This means another clerk will be hired to fill the newly vacant position, Leffler said.
