Bill Molnar, who was brought on as Kershaw County’s assistant administrator six months ago, has been “let go,” according to County Administrator Clay Young.

“It was due to budgetary constraints,” said Young. “I just felt like we could do without an assistant administrator for the rest of this fiscal year. We have eliminated the position for now. We may look at bringing on an assistant down the line, but definitely not this fiscal year.”

Molnar, who was making $72,000 a year, was let go early this month, but will be paid through Dec. 10, according to Young. Molnar and Young had worked together previously through the S.C. Association of Counties.

Molnar beat out 40 applicants to replace former assistant administrator James Absher after Absher left the county to assume a finance director position with the city of Lancaster.

Before coming to Kershaw County, Molnar was a program director at the Clemson University Institute for Economic and Community Development in Columbia. He holds a doctorate degree in policy studies from Clemson.

At the time of his hire, Young praised Molnar’s “strategic planning and long-term goals and objectives.”

“The reason I chose Bill is I think we’ll complement each other,” Young said in April.

Angela Jones, the county’s human resource director, had no comment on the dismissal.

Two Kershaw County Councilmen contacted for this story declined to speak on the record because it is a personnel issue.
