Dave Hane retires May 1st, and Dana Tarpening will step up to the position at that time.  Tarpening believes her years that position have done a good job of preparing her for the new job.

“We do parallel some of duties now as City Manager and City Clerk.  We work together and we have a lot of huge projects going on right.  Big financial projects,” said Tarpening.

Tarpening has served as City Clerk since 1986.

The City is still accepting applications for a new City Clerk.  That period closes at noon on Monday.
