The Mercer County Board has hired a new county administrator. It’s the Moline firm Bohnsack and Frommelt. They have already been providing accounting assistance for the county so Sarah Bohnsack says it will be a good fit.
The firm will receive $125 per hour for the administrator contract and anticipate working 400 to 500 hours annually, which would equate to between $50,000 and $62,500.
The county’s former administrative consultant was Bellwether, LLC out of Bloomington. They resigned last month and had been receiving $6,000 per month plus $500 per month for expenses and another $500 monthly fee for debt service management.
