City clerk, alderman resignations accepted at Miller town meeting

Steve Chapman

The Miller Board of Aldermen voted to accept the resignation of City Clerk Candace Englind during their meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 6. Englind’s resignation is effective Friday, Aug. 16. The board also voted to advertise the vacancy for the city clerk’s position in the Lawrence County Record and the Greenfield Vedette; advertising will run for two weeks, and those interested in filling the position must turn in their applications and/or resumes by Aug. 30.
The board also voted to hire Lawna Price, the city clerk for Granby, as a consultant who will perform the duties of the city clerk until the city hires a new full-time city clerk. Price will be paid $15 per hour, and will work a maximum of eight hours per week.
Additionally, the board voted to accept the resignation of Alderman Allen Campbell. Campbell was hired last month by the Mt. Vernon Police Department as a patrolman; he tendered his resignation by e-mail on July 15 because the hours required for his new job prevent him from fulfilling his duties as alderman.
In other business, Mayor Stacy Daniels suggested the city begin interviewing candidates for the position of police chief on Thursday, Aug. 22. She asked members of the board to check their schedules to make sure the date would work for them, and also asked them to suggest alternative days in September on which the interviews could be held. She also said the scheduled purchase of new police equipment is on hold pending the hiring of the new police chief.
The board also voted to hire McLiney and Company as the city’s new financial advisors; passed a new school zone ordinance with wording changes proposed by MoDOT; voted to contract with Lawrence County to provide law enforcement coverage of the city’s Fall Festival; and voted to open a new bank account for the city’s primacy and DNR fees.
