York County's prison warden will now serve as the county's executive director of human services.

Clair Doll starts his new job on May 3, according to a Thursday news release from York County spokesperson Mark Walters.

He will oversee six human-services agencies in the county, according to Walters: the Area Agency on Aging; the office of Children, Youth and Families; Health Choices; York/Adams Mental Health/Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (MH-IDD); the York/Adams Drug and Alcohol Commission; and the Youth Development Center.

Doll took over as York County Prison warden in May 2017 but had previously worked there for nearly two years as a treatment supervisor before taking a job with the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, according to Walters.

He returned to the county prison in August 2008 as deputy warden, Walters said.

Doll earned roughly $112,000 a year as warden according to Walters, who said Doll's new salary will be $116,500.

Current Deputy Warden Adam Ogle "will assume leadership in an interim capacity," according to Walters.
