POMEROY — During last week’s special meeting, Pomeroy Council addressed the resignation of one fiscal officer and the hiring of a new one.
Mayor Mary McAngus read a resignation letter for Pam Haggy, now former village fiscal officer, stating her resignation effective May 29, 2012. The letter was submitted that same day.
Haggy requested to be paid for personal time accumulated, but is unable to collect that pay since her resignation was immediate and she did not work out a notice, according to council minutes.
Haggy’s resignation was unanimously accepted by council. Haggy was hired by council in August 2011 to replace longtime clerk/treasurer Kathy Hysell who was retiring.
Since it had been less than one year since the previous hiring, the position could be filed using the prior applications.
McAngus appointed Sonya Wolfe to the position of fiscal officer for the village. Council unanimously approved the appointment.
Wages for the position were set at $9.25 per hour, with a six-month probationary period. The position will be at 40 hours per week, not to exceed 80 hours per pay period.
Former clerk/treasurer Hysell was hired on a temporary basis by a 5-1 vote to train Wolfe. Council member Robert Payne voted no.
The regular meeting set for June 11 was not held due to lack of a quorum. The next meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 25, at Village Hall.
