Montevideo Assistant City Manager Angie Steinbach has officially accepted the position of Yellow Medicine County Administrator. Steinbach will begin her duties with Yellow Medicine County on January 7, 2019, and will take over the reigns from long-time YMC Administrator Peg Heg­lund who is retiring at the end of January.
