One of the last tasks outgoing Clerk of Council Casey Brown performed before handing over the keys to newly-appointed Clerk of Council Joe S. Geers was updating City Council’s website with contact information for the new council. The Democratic council majority has also appointed Debbie Simpson again to be Council Secretary, replacing Caroline Schirmer. Debbie served as Council Secretary prior to Caroline’s appointment 2 years ago. Another change at City Hall is in Auditor Jim Stith’s office. We understand Bob Laake, who handled payroll, has resigned and that former President of Council Jane Grote will be working in the office in some capacity.
We want to thank both Casey Brown and Caroline Schirmer for the many contributions they made to this blog over the last 2 years. Our readers were definitely better informed about community and government-related matters because of their support.
