Kost Resigns As Rhinelander Interim City Administrator


Rhinelander's interim City Administrator has turned in his resignation.

Keith Kost turned in his resignation Wednesday to Mayor Chris Frederickson. Frederickson says no reason was given on the letter as to why Kost would resign early.

A long-time Rhinelander private attorney, Kost offered to fill in as administrator, and after city council approval, began performing the duties in February, 2017. The position was left unfilled for five months after the termination of Kristina Aschenbrenner. 

His contract with the city was scheduled to run until the end of June and he had indicated that he did not want the job on a permanent basis. The city has been moving forward with a search for a permanent administrator and have hired a consulting firm to find candidates for the job. A special Rhinelander city council meeting is set for Monday night to discuss the administators post.
