Town loses clerk-treasurer
As Coupeville officials finish work on next years budget, one of the employees who helped produce the budget will move on.
Clerk-treasurer Linda Marsh will resign this week. Thursday is her last day.
She is heading to Central Washington where she took a position as clerk/treasurer for the city of Pateros.
Marsh, who has worked for the Town of Coupeville for the past five years, said she took the new job because its a smaller community with a lower cost of living.
I think it will be a nice community, she said.
Marsh plans to start her new position Monday. Shell be working in an office with two full time people. Marsh plans to hold her new position until she retires, which she plans to do in the next four to nine years.
Coupeville Mayor Nancy Conard said she was surprised about Marshs new position and was sad to see her go.
Its great to have that kind of stability, Conard said of Marshs five-year tenure as clerk-treasurer.
Conard said she has started advertising for the new position and about a half dozen applications have been submitted. She hopes to start interviewing candidates in the next 10 days. The clerk-treasurer, who is responsible for town finances, earns between $4,161 and $4,679 per month.
One thing the new clerk-treasurer wont have to worry about is the 2006 town budget.
Conard said employees have been working on sorting out a draft of the preliminary budget. She said a draft should be finished by the end of the week. A public hearing is scheduled to take place at the Nov. 22 Town Council meeting. She said only minor changes should come out of that hearing.
During the Nov. 8 town council meeting last night, the town recognized Marsh for her years of service at Town Hall.
