The Le Sueur County Board of Commissioners accepted the resignation of county coordinator Roxy Traxler at its regular meeting held Tuesday, Oct. 17 at the courthouse in Le Center.

The resignation was not on the meeting agenda for October 17, but was presented as a late addition by personnel coordinator Peggy Donovan.

The commissioners accepted the resignation, which is effective November 16, while thanking the coordinator for her service to the county during the past year. Traxler started the job, which was a new position created last year, in July 2005.

The county board had held a special closed meeting on Monday, Oct. 16 to conduct a performance evaluation of the coordinator. After completing the evaluation, the board found her performance satisfactory and moved to grant her permanent status effective July 11, 2006, her one-year anniversary date, with salary and benefits to be retroactively paid to that date under the Le Sueur County pay scale.

Traxler said later (Tuesday) she has taken another job in Mille Lacs County, where Milaca is the county seat. She added that her husband is employed by UPS and will be transferring to that area. They presently live in Arlington.

Also at Tuesday's meeting:

• Human Services Director Sue Rynda and John Glisczinski, fiscal officer, presented the monthly update of department activity. The report included finance graphs, income maintenance/child support, family services, social services and child services teams, out-of-home placement and in-home family therapy reports, and updates from the behavioral health team. The graphs include comparisons with previous months and the previous year.

Rynda also introduced a new staff member, Patty Wolter, an office support specialist.

The director also briefed the commissioners on the I-90 legislative proposal on a children's mental health initiative, gave an update on ending long-term homelessness, and reported that $46,000 in state funding has been received for administrative costs in the area aging transportation program directed by Shelly Barnett and based in Montgomery.

• The board reviewed preliminary drawings for renovation of the steel shed located next to the law enforcement center and directed Jim McMillen, maintenance supervisor, to seek bids for the work.

• The board gave approval to post and advertise for a highway maintenance worker for the Cleveland shop for hiring in 2007, and accepted the report of Bjorklund Compensation Consulting for several county positions.

• County Engineer Darrell Pettis will arrange a meeting involving Elysian and Cordova townships and the county board concerning transfer of a township road west of Lake Tetonka near Waterville to the county, making it eligible for county state aid funding. The road is heavily traveled and needs improvements.
