Palm Beach County’s new Department of Community Services director is James Green, who’s been outreach and community programing division director for the county government’s Youth Services of Palm Beach County since 2015. Before that, Green had been program director for the county’s Community Action Agency for six years.
At their meeting Tuesday, county commissioners ratified County Administrator Verdenia Baker’s designation of Green. The Royal Palm Beach resident starts his new position Monday. He said his pay will go from $77,935 to around $114,000. He replaces Chanell Wilkins, who resigned in August.
