Administrator candidates interviewed; choice could go to La Crosse County board Thursday night



The La Crosse County Board could approve a choice for county administrator at its regular monthly meeting Thursday night.  But that choice might not be revealed right away. 

The board’s executive committee conducted interviews with three finalists for the job on Wednesday…Jane Klekamp, Larry Bierke, and Scott Feldt.  Klekamp is the county’s interim administrator. 

Jane Klekamp is questioned by a county committee during a job interview on Wednesday.

County clerk Ginny Dankmeyer says the committee’s choice probably will be revealed to the full board in closed session, when supervisors could vote to offer a contract to a candidate.  All the finalists may be notified before the final choice is made public.
