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 2022. Doehring, 47, is completing her fourth 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 2022 salary will be $107,000, is an at-will employee.
She was hired in January 2015 as the county’s human resources director and eventually took on the role of assistant county administrator. She is the county’s third administrator since the position was created in 1991.
Doehring holds a master’s degree in organizational communications and a bachelor’s in communications.
