In her new role, Jindrich will be responsible for all of the county’s financial management responsibilities, such as financial reporting and the annual budget, according to the release.

“I am excited to continue my career with the Linn County Finance and Budget Department as Linn County finance director. I look forward to maintaining Linn County’s strong financial position and reputation for excellence in financial management,” Jindrich said in the release.
