La Crosse County close to replacing O’Malley as administrator



The process of hiring a new La Crosse County administrator moves closer to the finish line Wednesday.

The county’s executive committee will consider a contract to appoint Jane Klekamp as full-time administrator during its monthly meeting.

The full county board voted Monday night to offer Klekamp the job that she’s had on an interim basis for several months.

If the committee says yes to a contract, the final vote probably would be taken by the county board at its next meeting, Jan. 19.

Klekamp would succeed Steve O’Malley, who retired in August.
