Rockdale County's MIS Director Dax Thompson, who headed up the county's IT duties, resigned from his post two weeks ago.
"I am grateful for the opportunities that Rockdale County has provided over the last 11 years and will greatly miss my associates, coworkers and friends here in the county," wrote Thompson in his notice of resignation he submitted March 15. Originally, Thompson provided eight weeks of notice, but his last day with the county was April 9.
Thompson had been employed since 1999 and resigned with an annual salary of $67,600.
The Board of Commissioners approved a description for the position of the MIS director position at the Tuesday meeting. A question was raised of whether or not to include equivalent education and experience to the formal education and experience required, and whether that was the standard practice of neighboring counties. HR Director Jeff Pogue provided examples from counties such as Cobb, Henry and Newton where that was included in the job description for an MIS director position.
