Lake County Manager Alan Rosen has submitted a letter of resignation.

The County Commission hired Rosen last December at $185,000 a year.
Eight months later he is asking to terminate the contract, saying that his family, "has been going through a lot recently."
A county official says it's a family medical issue.
In the letter, dated Aug. 11, Rosen requested administrative leave until next Wednesday, which would be his last day.
He is asking for a severance package under his contract as if the county were firing him without cause. He would get a payment equal to his salary for 20 weeks, plus continued health benefits.
He also requests a consulting contract for $1,558 a month for a year and a half, unless he gets another job.
The County Commission will consider his resignation request next Tuesday.
