Marquette Co. Board Discusses Administrator Position

The Marquette County Board of Commissioners stopped just short of offering the County Administrator position to one applicant this evening.

Scott Erbisch was appointed Interim Administrator when Steve Powers left the area last fall after 15 years with the county. Outgoing Commissioner Jim Cihak tonight recommended Erbisch for the job on a permanent basis. Others also praised Erbisch. But, after some discussion, it was decided that a final decision on the position will be put off until next month.

Commissioner Mike Quayle was the lone dissenting voice on the issue. Although he said Erbisch has proven himself in the position, Quayle firmly stated his desire to see the applicant review report to compare the top three candidates. The board asked the firm hired to review applicants to provide a full report on the candidates by the end of this week.

The Marquette County Board of Commissioners will meet for a regular board meeting Tuesday, March 6, at 6:00 P.M. in Room 231 of the Henry A. Skewis Courthouse Annex,
