Stephens City clerk to resign

STEPHENS CITY – The town of Stephens City is looking to hire a new town clerk after Susan Jarreau announced her resignation late last week.

Jarreau began working as assistant town clerk in 2014 with Dianne MacMillan before MacMillan retired, and took her place at the first Town Council meeting in January 2015. In an interview, Jarreau said she announced her resignation on Jan. 22, which would be effective on Feb. 5.

“I feel like my talent and experiences could be used better in a different environment,” she said.

She also said she does not have another job lined up after resigning. Her notice comes about two months after Town Treasurer Tina Wyatt resigned. Wyatt was replaced by Stephen Rickards at the town’s Jan. 5 meeting.

Town Manager Mike Majher said he posted a notice on Tuesday that Stephens City would be hiring to fill the position on the town’s website and that an advertisement for the position would most likely go out within the week. Another ad on the town’s website for hiring its fourth police officer states that applications for that position would be accepted through Feb. 1.

The town’s finance committee discussed salary options for both the town manager and the new police officer at its meeting on Wednesday.
