Swift County auditor to submit resignation Tuesday


BENSON — It’s been in the works for almost two years, and on Tuesday longtime Swift County Auditor Byron Giese will make it official and submit his letter of resignation, ending his 31-year stint in office.

“Short and sweet” is how Giese described the letter of resignation he will hand over to the Commissioners at their board meeting Tuesday.

Deputy Auditor Loann Hagen, who has worked in the office for 35 years, said she will also resign on Tuesday.
