Vince Cautero has been selected for the position of director of the county's Department of Development Services, county officials said Friday. County Administrator Chris Chinault on Tuesday will ask the County Commission to confirm the appointment. Cautero has served as acting director of the department since July, following the resignation of Henry Leland.
Cautero has worked for the county for five years, first as a planner, then as director of the planning division. In that position, he was involved in the county's development of the comprehensive plan.
