With one retiring and another set to go on maternity leave, Donna Goodin, Marion County collector, asked for and received permission to hire one person for her Palmyra office.
The Marion County Commission approved the hire during Monday’s meeting, at which they also discussed bidding for striping work.
According to Goodin, Tracy Graupman will be retiring April 14, and Brooke Jackson will be going on maternity leave sometime at the end of April.
She noted those applying will need bookkeeping, computer and customer service skills.
In other business, Mike Schaefer, county highway supervisor, reported he had received costs for the striping of Veterans Road and of part of West Ely Road.
However, since those cost exceeded $12,000, it is necessary to go out to bid.
Specifications for that project are available from the Marion County Highway Department, and bids will be opened during the commission meeting April 3.
The commissioners also reviewed the collector’s annual settlement, and briefly discuss black top work in the county this spring.
Schaefer said he hasn’t planned exactly what will be black topped, but did specifically mention the Hannibal Airport road.
