After 28 years Kelly Malmberg is soon going to retire as the Director of Ag Services for Vulcan County.

It's a career he's really enjoyed.

"Vulcan County has been a great place to work. The great thing about Vulcan County is it's a very rural, it's old school agriculture country, really good farmers out there and got really good producers, and ya I've really enjoyed working here, the ratepayers, I've built a really good rapport over the years so I'm really going to miss that," he says.

He says he'll do a little farming and joked about staying active.

"Go back and do a little farming and my wife's into horses so I can't afford to retire, I'll probably go and do something else, but I'm looking forward to it."

Malmberg says he'll step down at the end of September and will be replaced by Deanna Heather from the Milo area.

She's worked with Kelly for about a dozen years.
