In accord with a resolution adopted by unanimous vote of all ten persons at the Annual Town meeting in April, Middle Inlet Town Board on Thursday, May 8 adopted a resolution that may lead to adoption of an ordinance eliminating the elected position of town clerk/treasurer. The issue is to be on the ballot as a referendum at the general elections on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

State law requires that changes of this type be approved by referendum vote at a general election, following a resolution adopted by the Town Board. If the change is approved by voters in November the change will happen when the current clerk/treasurer term ends in April of 2014.

The current elected clerk/treasurer is Chuck Stanek. The vote to convert to an appointed position came after an explanation at the annual meeting of the benefits the change would bring. Also at the annual meeting electors approved a raise bringing the clerk/treasurer salary to $1,500 a month. This results in an annual pay increase of $1,161.12.
