Supervisors approve County Engineer work agreement

Knoxville — The Marion County Board of Supervisors met Monday morning in special session to approve a work agreement with Tyler Christian, the new County Engineer. 

Christian's official start date with the County is Dec. 4, and he will be appointed the County Engineer on the day current Engineer, Roger Schletzbaum, officially retires. The supervisors believe that will be Dec. 23. Schletzbaum announced his intentions to retire earlier this year. 

Christian, originally from Tracy, according to Supervisor Jim Kingery, was one of approximately five applicants for the position. He has not held a County Engineer's position in the past and previously worked with a consulting firm that aided the South Central Iowa Solid Waste Agency. 

The new County Engineer will receive an annual salary of $87,000. The supervisors believe that is around the state average pay for such a position. Schletzbaum was paid $95,198.61 by Marion County in calendar year 2012. 

The supervisors added that Christian will train with Schletzbaum until Schletzbaum's official retirement. They added that Schletzbaum has agreed to continue to consult with Christian for at least two months after his retirement.
