Thompson plans to take advantage of early retirement option in July 2006


WILLMAR -- The Kandiyohi County Commissioners approved an early retirement policy Tuesday. Two top-level county officials are expected to take advantage of it.

Wayne Thompson, who has served as the Kandiyohi County administrator for 28 years, will retire in 2006.

Thompson didn't remark about retiring during the meeting, but it's been no secret he intended to retire next year and several commissioners gently teased him about it.
