Deputy county administrator to begin July 18

Marathon County’s Deputy Corporation Counsel Lance Leonhard has a new job as the county’s new deputy administrator. Leonhard was selected from a pool of six internal candidates, says County Administrator Brad Karger. The county board is expected to confirm the appointment this month.

Before serving as deputy corporation counsel, Leonhard was a prosecutor in the Marathon County District Attorney’s office. He will replace Deb Hager, who retires in July. Leonhard will earn an annual salary of $110,240 and will start July 18.
