Pierce County administrative coordinator resigns

After less than three years on the job, Curt Kephart is resigning as Pierce County administrative coordinator.

Details of the severance agreement were being worked out Friday afternoon.

The Finance and Personnel Committee is set to meet in closed session Monday evening to consider the resignation and appoint an interim administrative coordinator.

"I don't have any (plans for the future) right now," said Kephart, 56, Friday morning. "I'm going to seek other employment opportunities."

He said the resignation would be effective May 20.

"I've generally left the place better than when I came, and I hope that will be the case here," said Kephart of his work in Pierce County. "The bottom line is you do the best you can."

He added, "This was a growing experience. I learned a lot."

Kephart worked as University of Minnesota Extension director for Wabasha and Goodhue counties from 2003 to 2004, as director of continuing education/ grant development for University of Minnesota Extension from 2001 to 2003 and as county coordinator in Dodge County, Minn., from 1992 to 2001.
