Lloyd Throne, director of the Department of Community Services and Development is leaving his post at the end of this month. Cliff Allenby, chairman of the Managed Risk Medical Insurance Board, will take over as acting director on May 3.
Throne made the announcement to staff in this e-mail last week.
As we reported in this Feb. 3 article, Community Services has had some problems with distributing federal money for weatherizing homes, a bureaucratic bottleneck that could wind up costing California $93 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds.
We asked department spokeswoman Maria Caudill about the circumstances of Throne's departure. She confirmed that his last day on the job will be April 30, but declined to say more.
"I'll pass your contact information on to the director," she said.
