Montevideo Assistant City Manager Angie Steinbach has been offered the position of Yellow Medicine County Administrator.

Last Wednesday, the Yellow Medicine County Board of Commissioners held interviews with finalists for the position, which will open up upon the retirement of the county’s current administrator, Peg Heglund. Heglund is set to retire at the end of January after serving the citizens of Yellow Medicine County for 39 years.

Steinbach, who has been Montevideo’s Assistant City Manager since 2015, said: "I was offered the position last Wednesday following interviews with the County Board. The offer is contingent upon mutual agreement to a contract and salary compensation.”

Before becoming Montevideo’s assistant City Manager, Steinbach spent three years as the Montevideo Community Development Director, and was also the Montevideo Chamber of Commerce’s Executive Director.
