WAUSAU — Gone, but not forgotten, former city clerk Margaret Riley was the topic of discussion at Thursday’s Wausau Town Council meeting.

Riley, who retired from the city in September, filed in a few days earlier this month when the town’s new clerk JoAnn Hayes was called out of town.

“As you know, JoAnn had a bad situation down south and Margaret filled in for her several days,” Mayor B.J. Phillips said. “I think we should give her some sort of reimbursement for her days here.”

Phillips said he thought Riley should be paid for her time, and the town council agreed.

“She shouldn’t be up here for free,” Phillips said. “Besides, we are going to need her help again at the end of the year and we don’t want her telling us she’s busy,” he added, jokingly.

Phillips said Riley said she did not care whether she was paid or not.

Hayes, who was present at the meeting, said Riley had worked between 18-20 hours for the city.
