The Marshall County Council approved a request from Clerk Julie Fox to hire two new employees in her office.
Fox explained that two of her deputies will be retiring, mostly due to the changes in retirement benefits.
Carolyn “Avon” Hansen has worked for 20 years with Marshall County. Fox said Hansen began in the clerk’s office and then moved to the child support division. She eventually came back to the clerk’s office and that’s where she will finish her career. Her last day will be May 30.
Linda Star has strictly worked in the clerk’s office for the past 18 years. Her last day in the office will be Sept. 30.
Fox asked for permission to seek replacements for the open positions once their respective retirements take effect. The council unanimously approved her request.
