ETNA GREEN — The Etna Green Town Council recognized Clerk-Treasurer Laura Baker for her years of service during the council meeting Tuesday, Dec. 11.
Councilmen Todd Slabaugh, Kevin Smith II and Keith Claassen, alongside Deputy Clerk Eileen Hall, presented Baker with an award recognizing her 23 years of service as clerk-treasurer.
“I’ve been part of the council for about 15 years,” said Slabaugh. “Laura has been my right hand and right leg. We couldn’t make ends meet without her. You have our heartfelt thanks.”
Baker will start working with the Triton School Corporation in January 2019. She told the council that she is currently working on a list of monthly responsibilities to help the incoming clerk-treasurer. Kosciusko County Chairman Mike Ragan will be appointing a new clerk-treasurer on Dec. 21.
