Former Niagara County manager Jeffrey M. Glatz was appointed director of the county Veterans Service Agency Tuesday.
The county Legislature confirmed the nomination of Glatz by his successor as manager, Richard E. Updegrove. The veterans post pays $47,039 a year, which will rise to $49,982 on Jan. 1.
Glatz served as county manager from September 2010 to March 2016. He was appointed last year to a North Tonawanda alderman seat, but lost in the November election. He was a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force and also served as a nursing home administrator and a member of the North Tonawanda Board of Education before becoming county manager.
The Legislature also approved a raise from $20,000 to $25,000 a year for Malcolm A. Needler, the county's part-time personnel officer since January 2015.
