The Ste. Genevieve County Well being Board of Trustees appointed Jennifer Mueller as the brand new well being administrator Monday afternoon in closed session.
Provisional Well being Administrator Jeannette Wooden resigned after the county fee and Prosecuting Lawyer Wayne Williams notified her that her appointment was unlawful on account of serving on the board and never having a yr vacant earlier than being appointed.
Through the Ste. Genevieve County Fee assembly, Deputy County Clerk Michele Gatzemeyer spoke concerning the new appointment.
“Jennifer Mueller has been with the well being division for a variety of years,” she mentioned. “She’s been in public well being for 27 years.
“She was prepared to provide it a attempt. From what I perceive, she is giving it a trial run to see.”
