New Renville County Administrator 08 Sep 16

OLIVIA—Renville County’s Board of Commissioners announced Wednesday the appointment of Lisa Herges as the new county administrator.

The West Central Tribune reports Herges had been offered the position in August and recently accepted it following discussions with Board Chairman Bob Fox.

Herges has been working with Mille Lacs County for 13 years, the last eight years as personnel director/assistant county administrator. She is currently serving as coordinator for Todd County as part of a commitment made by Mille Lacs County to assist the neighboring county.

Fox said Herges will fulfill a 90-day commitment made to Todd County, and consequently will serve Renville County on a part-time basis until mid-November. She will begin her part-time duties in Renville County on Sept. 26.

Herges succeeds Sara Folsted, who recently accepted the administrator position in Rice County.
