ST. JOSEPH — Berrien County Treasurer Bret Witkowski said that after more than 20 years, he is stepping down as an elected official and taking a job with Abonmarche, an engineering firm in Benton Harbor.

He said he plans to stay in the treasurer’s office through the end of March so he can help finalize the list of properties being foreclosed on.
