resign from county
Two familiar faces will be leaving the Kingsbury County Courthouse at the end of the year.
Commissioner Audrey Lembke’s seat in District 3 was up this year and she did not seek re-election in November. No one ran for her seat in November, so the commission will appoint someone.
“Legally we can’t appoint someone until Audrey’s vacancy is up,” Commission Chair Shelley Nelson said. Commissioners have interviewed candidates for the seat and will hold a special meeting Jan. 5, the day before the regular meeting, to appoint the new commissioner.
Lembke has served Kingsbury County for 20 years. She was a county commissioner for four years. Prior to that, she served as Kingsbury County Deputy Treasurer and later as Kingsbury County Treasurer.
Kingsbury County Auditor Jennifer Albrecht will also be leaving her position at the end of the year. Albrecht was Kingsbury County deputy auditor from October, 2002-April, 2004, when she took over duties of county auditor.
Albrecht thanked the commissioners for the recent work done in the auditor’s office, including new paint and ceiling tiles.
