LEMONT – Lemont Village Administrator Ben Wehmeier has been hired as the county administrator for Jefferson County in Wisconsin.

He will continue working in his Lemont position until the end of June.

Wehmeier called it a "bittersweet decision" but one he made for professional advancement and to move back to his native Wisconsin.

Wehmeier has served as village administrator since 2010.

Lemont Mayor Brian Reaves said he and the Lemont Village Board will discuss how to fill the village administrator position at a later meeting.

"We are very sad to see him go. It's been great having him here," Reaves said. "But we've always known a person of his caliber was bound to move on to a bigger community."
