The county administrator position is based in the County Office Building at 111 W. Fox in Yorkville.

Kendall County is now accepting applications for a new full-time county administrator.

Former long-time County Administrator Jeff Wilkins left the position in May after 15 years on the job. Scott Koeppel, the county’s technology services director since August of 2015, has been serving as interim administrator since Wilkins’ exit.

Among the requirements listed for the job, the county lists a minimum of a bachelor’s degree required with a master’s degree in public administrator, business administration, public finance, accounting or “related fields” or “equivalent work experience” preferred. They also ask for a minimum of seven years of “increasing responsible professional experience in public or business administration, including at least four years in a management position.”

No specific salary amount is listed, but the job description states that salary will be “based upon experience and qualifications.”

The applications and requirements can be found at the employment section of the county’s website.
