The new Wabasha County Administrator has been on the job for about a month.
He is Larry Zimmerman, a native of Hancock. Minnesota, who came to Wabasha from Washington County where he worked for eight years as a Senior Planner.
According to rthe Wabasha County Herald, Zimmerman was hired after the position of county administrator was restored last winter on a recommendation from a Government Study Committee and a judge's decision.
The position, and its previous occupant, David Johnson had been eliminated by the Wabasha County Board, in a controversial decision, two years earlier in favor of a County Coordinator position.
Zimmerman told the paper he has been working on keeping lines of communication open in the county along with mending some fences.....
