Barron County has a new manager of its Waste to Energy and Recycling Facility south of Almena. Brent Bohn, who was formerly assistant manager, began his new role Tuesday.
His appointment comes after the Executive Committee at its Sept. 3 meeting approved a waiver of education requirements for the Waste to Energy position and the appointment of Bohn to fill the vacancy. County Administrator Jeff French said he met with nine department heads, and it was unanimous to appoint Bohn to the top spot. His starting pay is $44.82 per hour.
