Wilkin County Board assesses departmental budget and personnel concerns

In the April 19, meeting the board discussed budgeting and personnel concerns. 

Wilkin County, Minnesota, hired again for its county attorney position following the resignation of Matthew Jorud, whose last day was Tuesday, Nov. 16. Joseph Glasrud of Big Stone County, Minnesota, will assume the role beginning Dec. 20. In the interim, Christopher Cadem was hired to assist with the caseload.

Jorud was with the county for a short time, replacing former county attorney of five years, Carl Thunem, in August. Jorud submitted his letter of resignation to the county board earlier this month, citing personal reasons that will require more of his external time and attention than the job would allow. During his brief tenure, Jorud transitioned the filing system to be paperless, a move that will hopefully smooth the onboarding of the new attorney.
