Jim Bialecki's term as administrator of Monroe County will continue for a while.
The county board has voted to retain Bialecki indefinitely, unless the board decides to hire another person or changes the job.
Bialecki had only taken the post for a six-month term, after the previous administrator moved to a different county.
Since then, county leaders have decide to take more time to figure out future management needs.
"None the less, I think things are going quite well and therefore the county has made my appointment permanent and that would be the role of county administrator," Bialecki said.
Bialecki is a past mayor of Onalaska, and served as Tomah city administrator before getting the Monroe County job.
