HOLIDAY HILLS – The new Village Board is looking for a treasurer and an attorney after both resigned following the April election.
The board considered three candidates for treasurer at a special meeting Thursday and has a meeting planned for next week to interview three law firms, Village President Daniel Drury said.
Drury replaced Mickey Brown, who was village president for 13 of the past 22 years.
Village Treasurer Tami Chesler resigned because she said her full-time job was taking more of her time, Drury said.
She worked about 15 hours a week for $13.50 an hour, he said. The board is looking for its next treasurer to take the same rate of pay.
“All three [candidates] are very well-qualified,” Drury said. “They have a knowledge of the job, bookkeeping and experience with being a treasurer. They’re trustworthy and willing to take $13.50.”
One of the candidates is a certified public accountant, and the others have bookkeeping experience, he said. They’re all residents of Holiday Hills.
After the interviews and receiving input from the board, Drury will make a recommendation at the board’s June 3 meeting. He also hopes to have an attorney recommendation then, too.
