Rhinelander interim city administrator resignsSubmitted: 04/25/2018
RHINELANDER - Interim Rhinelander City Administrator Keith Kost turned in his resignation Wednesday to take effect immediately. 

Kost took over the position in May 2017 after former administrator Kristina Aschenbrenner was fired in August 2016.

Last year, Kost told Newswatch 12 he wouldn't extend his contract beyond June 2018 but planned to help the city find a new administrator.

Mayor Chris Frederickson said he didn't know why Kost resigned. 

The City Council will decide whether to approve Kost's resignation at a special meeting Monday night.
