According to a news release from the Grant County Commission, Chairman Chris Ponce said: "Evaluating and supervising the county manager is probably our most important function as a governing body."

"Because it is so important for us to get this right, and because the Commission did not have a comprehensive evaluation process in place prior to this year, we have ended up taking longer than we wanted to complete it," Ponce said. "The delay is no reflection whatsoever on Ms. Webb's performance.

"We intend to vote on this at the special meeting at 1 p.m. on Dec. 18, 2019," he concluded.
