North Aurora has hired a new village administrator, 10 months after its last one quit.

The village board Monday night approved a four-year contract with Steven Bosco, who works in Bartlett.

The village will pay Bosco $97,000 and he will be eligible for annual raises of $3,000 to $10,000 per year, depending on how he scores on an annual performance review.

He will start Aug. 5.

Former administrator Wes Kornowske quit at the end of August 2012, to take a job in private industry in his hometown of Green Bay, Wis.

North Aurora Police Chief David Summer has been the interim administrator.

"I have a long list for him," President Dale Berman said. That includes doing a strategic plan for the village, as well as helping with the already under way comprehensive land-use plan update.

Berman said he deliberately chose a candidate with some experience, but not as a top administrator. "That's really what I wanted, somebody looking for a new challenge ... I like that youthful thinking," Berman said.

Bosco is the assistant to the village administrator in Bartlett, and lives in Aurora. He has a master's degree in public administration from Northern Illinois University.

He and his wife are expecting their first child later this month, Berman said, which is why Berman decided to not have him start until August.
