Jackie Perman will retire in April next year as city clerk in Electric City, she announced last week.

"We will miss her; she has done a wonderful job for the city," Mayor John Nordine II, said Tuesday.

Perman started working for Electric City in 1999, as a one-day-a-week court clerk and became the deputy clerk under then-mayor Ray Halsey in 2002. Perman was advanced to city clerk in 2006, and recently completed 10 years as clerk.

"The work of the city clerk is constantly changing," Perman stated Monday. "You are constantly learning new things and that's what makes being clerk interesting."

Mayor Nordine announced at the city's regular council meeting Tuesday that Deputy Clerk Russell Powers will take over the city clerk position when Perman retires.

Nordine said Powers has expanded the deputy clerk role by taking on extra duties on the city's pathways project.

'We will soon be advertising for applicants for the deputy clerk position," the mayor said.

He said there will be an overlap of duties while both Powers and the new deputy clerk assume their new roles with the city.
