St. Joseph County Administrator Teresa Doehring has agreed to a one-year contract renewal.
During Tuesday’s board of commissioners meeting, county officials approved a contract for 2021. Doehring, 46, is completing her third year as the highest-ranking, non-elected employee in county government.
A lifelong Mendon-area resident, Doehring said she is grateful commissioners think enough of her to keep her on board another year and with a higher salary.
Doehring, whose 2021 salary will be $105,000, is an at-will employee. She is the county’s third administrator since the position was created in 1991.
She previously served as human resources director of Heritage Community of Kalamazoo, a senior-living facility, and before that was a benefits specialist for Western Michigan University.
