Bucks County's deputy human resources director will be the department's interim leader following the suspension of its longtime director, the county's chief operating officer, Brian Hessenthaler, said Friday.
Travis Monroe will take over for Meredith Dolan, suspended indefinitely following grand jury findings that "lax" department practices had cost the county at least $450,000, Hessenthaler said.
Monroe's title will not change, he said, adding that the county is reviewing how other human-resources departments handle their duties. He said that decisions about the department's future - including a permanent director - will not be made until that review is complete. He said he did not expect Dolan to return.
