WAUSAU — The Wausau Town Council will begin discussing applicants at a special noontime workshop on Thursday, July 18.

City Clerk Margaret Riley announced her plans to retire in September after 17 years as a town employee, and the council has been advertising for her replacement. A total of 14 applications came in to the city for the position, Riley said.

“I would like for us to get that number down to the top five and then call those folks back in for interviews,” said Mayor B.J. Phillips.

“Not everybody can do this job,” Phillips said. “We want to look at the applications and try and find the best fit for this position.”

The council will meet again in workshop at 6 p.m. on July 25 to interview candidates, Riley said.

The water department finances continue to improve, Riley reported, with the outstanding balance of accounts delinquent by four or more months dropping to about $3,000.

“We’ve seen a steady improvement,” Phillips said. “I will be glad when I see all zeros there, though.”
