Miller hired as clerk for commissioners

Staff Report

POMEROY — Tonya Miller has been hired as the new clerk of the Meigs County Commissioners.

The action to hire Miller, who had previously filled in at the office a few years ago when then-clerk Gloria Kloes was away from the office, came during Thursday’s regular meeting.

Commissioner Jimmy Will made the motion for the hiring, with a second by Commissioner Tim Ihle. Both Will and Ihle voted in favor of the hiring, with Commissioner Randy Smith abstaining from the vote as he did not take part in the interviews.

Will commented that there were “great interviews and candidates” for the position which was left vacant earlier this year after the board terminated the employment of then-clerk Betsy Entsminger.

During the meeting, Recorder Kay Hill requested to install cameras at her office and the outside door near the office. The cameras could be monitored both at the sheriff’s office and at the new courthouse entry point, as well as having a monitor in the Recorder’s office. The commissioner’s approved the purchase not to exceed $3,000.
