New Port Richey, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-There is a change coming to Pasco County government. The Pasco County Commission has approved a 3-year contract with Dan Biles to be Pasco's next County Administrator.
Biles will take over from retiring Pasco County Administrator Michele Baker, who has served as administrator since May 30, 2013. Biles is slated to start his new position on May 1 with an annual starting salary of $220,000.
