County Administrator seeks new employer (08/21/2013)
By Sarah Squires
Winona County Administrator Duane Hebert is looking for a new job. Wabasha County officials recently announced he was named as a finalist in their search for a new Wabasha County Administrator, following a period of turmoil among Winona's northern neighbors over whether Wabasha County needs an administrator at all.

Hebert was hired by Winona County four years ago, after serving as administrator in Barron County, Wis. He has also served various government administrative posts in Minnesota. During his time with Winona County, he has helped consolidate departments and reverse a previous county trend of collecting millions more annually than spent, thereby reducing the property tax levy.

According to summaries of performance reviews given by the County Board, Hebert has met goals and objectives over the course of his tenure with Winona County. Earlier this month, the County Board met in closed session during two meetings to conduct Hebert's most recent performance evaluation, expected to be summarized for the public next week during the regular board meeting.

When Hebert was hired as Winona County Administrator, he was embroiled in a lawsuit over claims he defamed a former Barron County employee by making statements alleging the employee had directed staff members to falsify highway department reports in order to receive extra state reimbursement money. An appeals court later found Hebert partly liable for the statements.

Hebert was unavailable for comment Tuesday.
