Assessor Takes Job With Utility Company

By From Staff And Wire Reports

Bonner County Assessor Tim Cochran is quitting his post to take a job with Northern Lights, a Sandpoint-based utility company.

Cochran served as assessor since 1981 and worked as an appraiser for the county four years before winning his elected post. He will become Northern Lights assistant manager on Sept. 1.

“The opportunity came along and term limits came along so the writing was on the wall that this job was soon to be over,” Cochran said.

Cochran faced another election in 1998. The Republican Central Committee will now select three candidates to replace him. Those names will be submitted to county commissioners who will appoint a new assessor.

“Tim’s experience in dealing with property owners, governmental agencies and community services will be a positive contribution to the cooperative,” said Northern Lights spokesman Rich Perkins. , DataTimes
