The Winona County Board Tuesday formally appointed county finance director Pat Moga as the county's auditor-treasurer.
The duties were initially added to Moga on a temporary basis following the retirement of Sue Rivers last November. Commissioner Marcia Ward said she and board members intend to keep the auditor-treasurer position as an elective one.
Moga will continue to serve in both positions until River's term ends at the end of 2014. An election will be held in November 2014.
