ST. CLOUD -- The Stearns County Board of Commissioners have approved a plan to hire an interim Human Services Director.

Roma Steil has been the longtime head of that department, but she is retiring on April 22nd.

County Administrator George Rindelaub says they'll offer the job to Dave Rooney.  He retired from a similar position in Dakota County in 2009.

Rooney will be offered the job for the months of May and June.  He's expected to help Stearns County in their effort to review the Human Services department.  He may make recommendations on how it can be improved.

Rooney is also a graduate of St. Cloud State University.
