Susie Kufahl, director of the Riley County Health Department, has resigned her position effective April 1. The resignation paperwork was authorized by the Riley County Commission Monday during their meeting.
“I’ve been here for 16 years to the day,” Kufahl said about her resignation. “I’ve made it through all kinds of things, I just completed the transition and now it’s time for me to move on to other things.”
Kufahl said that she didn’t know who her successor will be at this point and that the decision, “will be up to whatever process the commission will want to go through.”
Kufahl said she will be pursuing “private opportunities,” after her resignation is final, but did not elaborate.
