Council converts clerk position to full time


Delaware City Council approved a resolution Monday night to change its city clerk from part-time to full-time.

Elaine McCloskey’s salary will be $18.13 per hour, or $37,710 annually, as a full-time employee compared with $362.50, or about $9,400 annually, when it was part-time.

“The position now will be based out of City Hall and be the primary council liaison,” said city spokesman Lee Yoakum.”

Responsibilities include council packet preparation, and distribution; writing ordinances, resolutions and preparing proclamations; and maintaining the council calendar. In addition, the clerk will be responsible for council follow-up; distribution of resolutions, ordinances, proclamations and minutes to appropriate parties; and for filing.”

Council had approved the conversion of the clerk position in its 2017 budget on Dec. 22.

Additionally, the city has three openings (not including police/fire and municipal court jobs): a full-time assistant prosecutor; executive assistant for the city manager with annual salary of $50,814.40 listed; and a project engineer with an annual salary range of $66,851.20 – $72,384.
