Sixteen months after coming on board as El Dorado County’s chief lawyer Robyn Drivon is leaving.
The Board of Supervisors accepted her resignation on Dec. 15.
Drivon started as El Dorado’s county counsel in September 2014. Her last day is Jan. 8. She is going to work for Sacramento County starting Jan. 10 as their county counsel. She will be making $215,043 plus benefits of $80,944 for a total of $295,987.
Because the two counties are in different retirement systems Drivon is actually retiring from El Dorado County. She is eligible for double dipping, like interim CAO Larry Combs. She will get about $100,000 from the Public Employees Retirement System while getting paid by Sac County.
Drivon’s annual salary in El Dorado County is $196,560.
Michael Ciccozzi, deputy county counsel, will be the interim county counsel. Currently he is acting assistant chief administrative officer. Combs is recruiting for a permanent assistant CAO.
The departure adds to the county’s vacancies at the upper echelon.
Per state law, county counsels serve four-year terms.
