New deputy county manager hired

Elbert County has named a new deputy county manager.

The selection of Eileen Krauth was announced by County Manager Sam Albrecht at the Jan. 23 Elbert Board of County Commissioners meeting.

The deputy county manager position expands on the duties previously assigned to the county's director of administration, a position that has been vacant since early November.

Krauth brings more than 25 years of local and state government leadership experience to Elbert County. She is a senior contracting specialist with the City of Colorado Springs, where she worked in various roles for nearly 16 years, including her most recent position as city council administrator. She also has prior experience in human resources, contract administration, and intergovernmental relations.

"We look forward to getting Eileen on board here at the county," Albrecht said in a news release. "She brings a breadth of experience in local government administration. She is a good fit for our organization and we look forward to working towards the county's strategic goals with her help and expertise."

Krauth holds bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Texas at Austin. Prior to her time at the City of Colorado Springs, she served as a research analyst and manager for the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement and as a policy analyst for the Texas Legislative Council. She also served for five years on the Harrison School District 2 Board of Education in southeast Colorado Springs, the last two years as president. She lives in Falcon with her husband and two girls.

The deputy county manager supervises a number of administrative operations in Elbert County, including finance, human resources, facilities and communications, and provides professional support to the county manager.

“I'm excited about the opportunity to come to work in Elbert County,” Krauth said in the release. “Sam and the commissioners have charted a solid course for the county, including a new strategic plan that addresses growth challenges while also focusing on responsible stewardship of the county's resources. It's a great team and I'm honored to be invited to join them.”
