AC treasurer resigns

CENTERVILLE — By Michael Schaffer

Managing Editor

The Appanoose County Board of Supervisors met in regular session Monday, April 1 at 9 a.m. in the boardroom of the courthouse and by a 3-0 vote accepted the resignation of Appanoose County treasurer, Mary Kay Williams, effective April 26.

Williams by telephone Monday afternoon said after 26 and one-half years as the treasurer she decided it was time to move on and spend more time with her family and follow other interests.

“It has been a pleasure working for you during the last 26 1/2 years I have served as Appanoose County Treasurer,” Williams wrote in her retirement letter she submitted to the Board of Supervisors.

While Williams technically retired, because she didn’t finish out her term in office, it’s considered a resignation. Williams’ term in office would have ended at the end of 2014.

The board voted 3-0 to advertise to accept applications for appointment to Appanoose County treasurer.

In other action, all by 3-0 votes:

• Granted an easement to Centerville at no cost for the city airport.

• Approved a resolution authorizing the redemption of outstanding general obligation capital loan notes, series 2007, of Appanoose County, state of Iowa, dated Sept. 1, 2007 and directing that notice of redemption be given.

The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance.

So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"
