Former Niskayuna supervisor Joe Landry and his director of administrative operations have both landed jobs with Schenectady County.

Effective Jan. 17, Landry became the deputy director of Public Works. His salary is $85,000. He will also receive $20,000 from his one-year contract as the county Legislature’s attorney.

According to county spokesman Joe McQueen, the job with the Public Works department was budgeted for in 2016 but has been unfilled until now. He said the position is a civil service job and that Landry has been hired provisionally — he will need to pass a civil service examination. McQueen did not know when that exam would be administered.

Landry has a civil engineering education background in addition to holding a law degree.

On Jan. 2, David Fronk became the deputy clerk for the County Legislature at a salary of $50,000. McQueen said that position was open due to a recent retirement. Under Landry, Fronk served Niskayuna as director of administrative operations.
