The Edgerton Local board of Education held a special meeting Thursday morning to fill the position of treasurer.
The board approved continuing the shared service agreement with the Edon Northwest Board of Education for the employment of district treasurer. At their Dec. 9 meeting, the Edon Northwest board approved the appointment of William Blakely to that position.
The Cresent News reports that the board also took action to have past treasurer Kerry Samples provide support on an as-needed basis for Blakely.
Blakely, who is also currently the fiscal officer for the village of Edgerton, will begin his new responsibilities effective Jan. 1, 2015, and will receive his treasurer’s certificate Feb. 28.
