The Auglaize County commissioners will have to go back to the drawing board in finding a new county administrator.
Tim Klopfenstein told commissioners on Friday he had decided to not take the position only eight days after the commissioners reached an agreement on hiring the Wapakoneta businessman.
Klopfensteinâs decision came 24 days before he was scheduled to start work on Nov. 28.
âWe were told Friday that for personal reasons, he was going to decline taking the position,â Commissioner Doug Spencer said. âThat is all I can really say. The search continues.â
