Dave Ross, Rock Island County Administrator

Rock Island County's new administrator has his work cut out for him. Dave Ross has been working to cut costs and find a way to pay for expanding the Justice Center. That's because the courthouse is in sorry shape after years of neglect.

The pace should pick up even more now that a Henry County judge has ruled that the county's Public Building Commission can proceed with the plan.

On today's WVIK News Focus, Michelle O'Neill spends a few minutes talking with County Administrator, Dave Ross. He's set to meet privately with the board tomorrow.

Officially, Michelle's title is WVIK News Editor which really just means she wears many hats, doing everything there is to do in the newsroom and around the radio station. She's a multimedia journalist and serves as Assignment Editor, reporter, radio news producer, copy editor, announcer, news anchor/host, and photographer. She also writes and produces content for WVIK.org and social media and trains interns.
