Mono County Hires New CAO

Mono County’s next chief administrative officer hails all the way from the Rocky Mountains.

After a national recruitment drive that attracted over 45 applicants, Mono supervisors have selected Steven Barwick for the job. He most recently served as city manager in Aspen, Colorado.

It was Barwick’s long career and impressive educational background that won county officials over. He has worked for Aspen for more than two decades and has held the city manager’s position for 10 years. Like Aspen, Mono is home to popular mountain resorts that see plenty of tourism in the wintertime.

“I am honored and excited to serve Mono County’s residents, Board of Supervisors, and county employees. My wife and I are eager to make new friends and become deeply involved in this wonderful community,” said Barwick (Sierra Wave). 

Barwick is replacing Leslie Chapman, who stepped down in May after four years on the job. His start date is Sept. 9.
