The Taylorville City Council and Mayor Bruce Barry have agreed on a new City Treasurer. Kellie Hamell has been named the new city Treasurer, taking over for Scott Alberssen who quit the position due to health concerns. The meeting was held on Monday evening at the City Council Chambers and Hamell was appointed the role to fill in for the next two years.
Taylorville Mayor Barry says Hamell spent time as the water billing manager for the last 3 years and has agreed to do both jobs.
The meeting also had a motion to create the office of deputy treasurer and to fill the impending vacancy of the Deputy Clerk but Mayor Barry said that they haven’t filled the position for treasurer yet and the Deputy Clerk stays the same.
The vote was 8-0 in favor of hiring Hamell. She is set to begin the job immediately.
