Thompson, who is currently serving as the assistant county auditor, will serve out the remainder of Modderman's elected term, which runs through 2014.

The Commissioners have not decided yet how to replace Jay Kieft, who resigned recently as director of human services.

Because of the two vacancies, the Commissioners agreed today to hire a consultant to study options for potentially reorganizing the county's structure and staff. That study is expected to take 2-3 months.
