The Itasca County Board of Commissioners has released a statement regarding the termination of Itasca County Administrator Trish Harren.
The county board terminated the employment agreement of the County Administrator, Trish Harren, effective, April 15, 2016. April 15 was selected as the date because the County Administrator has statutory rights to demand written charges and a public hearing on the charges prior to the date when final removal takes effect. Any public hearing would be before the County Board. The County Administrator must request the written charges and a public hearing by April 8, 2016. The County Administrator will be on a paid suspension during the period up to April 15, 2016. Any questions can be directed to County Board Chair Rusty Eichorn.
