New Law: Appointed office in Rock County

The office of auditor-treasurer in Rock County is one step away from becoming an appointed position.

Signed April 21 by Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a new law allows Rock County to make the office an appointed position. Under current law, a county may make the office of auditor-treasurer appointive if approved by a referendum.

The law would become effective with an 80 percent vote of approval by the county board.

The decision will be subject to a reverse referendum, and the current officeholder will be allowed to serve the remainder of the current term.

Rep. Doug Magnus (R-Slayton) and Sen. Jim Vickerman (DFL-Tracy) sponsor the law.
