Wellnitz TOWN OF BELOIT — When he arrives at town hall in a few weeks as the new full-time administrator, Tim Wellnitz plans to learn everything he can about local developments and jump right in.

The Janesville resident and current Janesville assistant attorney said he has been interested in transitioning to an administrative role for some time and aims to serve the township’s residents well.

“I’m grateful to the town board for this opportunity,” Wellnitz said. “I’m looking forward to getting started on the exciting things ahead.”

Interim Town Administrator Joe Rose said Wellnitz accepted a formal job offer on Thursday afternoon.

Wellnitz, 42, will officially start as administrator on Feb. 22. His salary will be $90,000.

Rose said the town board has asked him to show Wellnitz around the various departments, acclimate him on local affairs and introduce him to the staff members.

“He was the best candidate. We’re lucky that he was interested and came on board, and we’re happy to assist him in any way possible,” Rose said. “He has a very good demeanor and is extremely intelligent. I’m looking forward to assisting him with continuing our growth and the progress that we have made in the town and look forward to what we can accomplish as a group.”
