Kevin Corbid new county deputy administrator

Kevin Corbid will step into the position of deputy county administrator in Washington County.

The announcement was made this week by Molly O’Rourke, who took on the position of county administrator on Jan 27. O’Rourke’s appointment was made by the Washington County Board of Commissioners upon the retirement of former Administrator Jim Schug Jan. 26.

Corbid, 42, is currently the director of the Department of Property Records and Taxpayer Services in the county, a position he has held since 2001.

In that position, he has lead the county department that manages property records, taxation, property valuation, elections and license center functions, overseeing a staff of 104 employees and managing an $8.5 million budget.

While at Washington County, Corbid oversaw the merger of the office of the County Recorder and the Assessment, Taxpayer Services and Elections department into one department. During his tenure, the department has incorporated a number of new technologies to add efficiency and accuracy to the department’s work, often working with other counties to implement the new technology.

On a statewide basis, Corbid lead a statewide county effort to implement election administration changes required by the 2005 federal Help America Vote.
Previous to working for Washington County, Corbid worked as a policy analyst at the Association of Minnesota Counties and as a committee administrator at the Minnesota Senate. He has served on county association boards, as well as the United Way of Washington County East Board of Directors.

Corbid holds a bachelor of arts in political science from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter and a master of arts in public administration from Hamline University in St. Paul.

He and his wife live in Stillwater with their three children.
