Kleindl officially hired for county's top job


WILLMAR -- Larry Kleindl was officially appointed Tuesday as Kandiyohi County's future county administrator.

The Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a plan to phase Kleindl into the county's top job during the next 11 months.

Under the proposed plan, Kleindl will continue to hold his job as the family services director while at the same time learning the ropes for his new job from longtime Co-unty Administrator Wayne Thompson.
