Jackson's Search For Clerk Becomes Complicated

Jackson's search for a new City Clerk has grown more complicated.  When the position was discussed at the Jackson City Council meeting last night, it was announced that long-time City Clerk Gisele Wurzburger would be retiring after 18 years with the city. Originally, the city was planning to fill just the City Clerk portion of Wurzburger's position, but now is looking to fill Wurzburger's administrative position at City Hall as well as her City Clerk duties, which are primarily carried out at Council meetings.  The City will advertise both positions, and hopes to find a city resident who wants to fill both parts of the job.  The City Clerk position is elected and thus requires someone who lives within the city limits, and will face the voters for election in November 2018, but the Council hopes to change the position to an appointment in the future. The City Council also heard a report on an audit of the city's finances.  The report generally pronounced the city's finances and bookkeeping in good shape, but did include a warning on the rapidly growing expense of the retirement of City Employees.
