A/T office to see changes

The Cottonwood County auditor/treasurer’s office will see major changes in the coming weeks.

At Tuesday’s meeting, Cottonwood County Commissioners approved a $500 monthly stipend to current chief deputy auditor/treasurer Carolyn Rempel and approved having Rempel sign all necessary documents until the position is officially filled.

The board also approved a contract with outgoing auditor/treasurer Donna Torkelson to provide additional help in the office to prepare tax statements and prepare for the upcoming election. Because her work will be entirely outside of her regular hours of her new position with the city of Windom, the county will pay Torkelson $125 per hour for up to 32 hours per month.

More from Tuesday’s meeting appears in this week’s print and e-editions of the Citizen.
