San Bernardino County supervisors are continuing their search for a new county administrator following a closed-session meeting Tuesday where they came to no decision.

Two weeks ago, the county began a search for a new county administrative officer following the board’s firing of Mark Uffer from the position on Nov. 14. No specific reason was given for the ouster of Uffer, who had been administrator since 2004.

Tuesday’s closed-session agenda included an item listing possible appointment for the position but no decision was announced.

County spokesman David Wert said the county has gotten 133 applications so far.

Burt Southard, spokesman for Board Chairman Gary Ovitt, said the county is sifting through the applications to see how many of the applicants meet the county’s criteria.
