CAMBRIGE — The Dorchester County Council met Jan, 17, with Council President George L. “Lenny” Pfeffer Jr. presiding. After reviewing the motions and actions from the closed session, there were a couple of notable announcements with last affect to county residents.

Interim County Manager Jeff Powell announced long time county Human Resources head Becky Dennis is retiring after more than 20 years of county service.

The county currently employs nearly 600 people, both full and part-time.
