YORKVILLE – Kendall County officials said they have been impressed with the job performance of the county's administrator during closed session employee review discussions.
County Board members met in executive session to talk about the progress of Scott Koeppel, the county's administrator, in an annual review meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 11.
Koeppel said he hadn't heard anything from county officials regarding the annual employee performance review for him as of Thursday, Sept. 12 morning. However, he said, he's excited to get their feedback.
"Nothing has been delivered to me specifically," Koeppel said. "They had their discussion and are working through it."
County Board Chairman Scott Gryder said on Thursday, Sept. 12 afternoon that Koeppel is still under contract, so the talks didn't involve anything with money. He said County Board members talked about future goals regarding Koeppel and the the bottom line is that Koeppel will be keeping his job.
Gryder said the board is happy with what Koeppel has brought to the table so far, including a fresh perspective, his flexibility and always acting on the will of the board rather than trying to force any kind of position.
Gryder added he has heard nothing but good things about Koeppel from County Board members and staff alike.
"Everybody was very happy with him, so he's exceeding expectations," Gryder said.
Koeppel officially started working as county administrator in December 2017. Gryder said Koeppel's contract ends in December 2020.
