Sibley, Iowa — The process of selecting a new Osceola County Attorney continues.

In May, we told you that current Osceola County Attorney Bob Hansen is retiring from his post after 21 years, and plans to move to Colorado.

The Osceola County Board of Supervisors accepted applications for an attorney to replace Hansen until June 30th. The board now must decide from among the candidates and will appoint a new county attorney.

Hansen’s last day as county attorney will be Friday, July 21st. While the county board is doing interviews of candidates for the position this Friday, July 7th, the new county attorney that they appoint may not be able to start that soon. The O’Brien County Auditor’s office says that the board is also looking into doing a 28E agreement with another county to possibly share a county attorney until the new Osceola County Attorney is in office.
