WAUSAU — Wausau’s city clerk Margaret Riley announced her plans to retire on Sept. 30 at Thursday’s Town Council meeting.

“I appreciate every one of you, and I am going to miss you all,” Riley said to the council. She has worked for the town for 17 years.

“The council will need to vote in July to advertise the position, then interview in August,” Riley said. “I would like to be a part of the selection process, if I can.”

“Let’s plan on doing the interviewing at the Aug. 8 meeting,” said Mayor BJ Phillips. “We are certainly going to miss you,” Phillips said. “Every time I need some information, I can always call Margaret and she knows what to do.”

The council voted to accept her resignation.

“Plan on keeping your phone handy after you leave,” Phillips joked with Riley. “I suspect you’ll be getting some calls from us asking for help.”

Member Kerry Collins reported that Washington-Holmes Technical Center students would build a new stage runway for the Possum Palace for $1,200. “We’d like to try and get it done before Fun Day.” The 44th annual Possum Festival will take place on Aug. 3.
