Brownton’s public works supervisor resigns; city seeking replacement

The city of Brownton is searching for a new public works employee after accepting the resignation of 17-year employee Mark Streich.
Streich has accepted a job in the private sector and his resignation is effective Nov. 12.
The Brownton City Council met in special session Thursday night to start the advertising process for finding a replacement.
City Clerk Ella Kruse said Streich has agreed to assist the city in the transition to a new employee through the end of the year, provided the city continues to offer him health insurance until Dec. 31. Kruse said she will have to check on whether the city can continue to provide insurance on that basis.
“I feel we should do whatever we can to help him out,” commented Council Member Chuck Warner.
Streich is currently the public works supervisor and holds licenses for the wastewater and water systems.
Public works employee Chad Draeger asked the City Council about possibly dividing supervisory duties between him and the new employee, with the new person primarily supervising the wastewater system while Draeger supervises the parks, streets and water systems.
