Coulee Dam town clerk resigns
Carol Visker, the senior municipal clerk in the coulee area, has resigned her position at Coulee Dam.
Visker, who has been at Coulee Dam for 12 years, has taken a position at Almira/Coulee/Hartline schools.
“She has done a great job for us and she and I have had a good run together,” Mayor Quincy Snow said.
Snow said Visker would be available to answer questions about the 2014 budget which she put together before leaving.
“A lot of clerks in the area know what she could do and often asked for her assistance,” Snow stated.
His comments were mirrored by City Clerk Carol Boyce of Grand Coulee. “I am sorry to see her go,” Boyce said. “She has provided me with a wealth of information and answered a lot of questions for me that have come up since I’ve been the clerk here.”
Clerk Jackie Perman, of Electric City, said when she heard that Visker was leaving it sent “cold chills” and then stated, “Oh no!” Perman said she used Visker a lot to bounce ideas off, and had relied on her for information on the transfer station project.
Renée Tillman, town clerk at Elmer City, said, “Carol helped me a lot over the years.”
Visker was considered by all the city clerks as the senior clerk who kept up with state regulations and local projects.
Even Elmer City Mayor Mary Jo Carey stated, “Carol was good at her job.”
Snow said that Visker’s decision was partially due to the stress that developed the past couple of years.
She had felt pressure from the campaign staged by mayoral candidate Greg Wilder, who frequented city hall requesting public records in his effort to stall the proposed Coulee Dam wastewater treatment plant.
