Janey anticipated the needs of the residents and Council, was proactive in making changes to make processes more efficient, and was incredibly responsive to requests for help and information. As City Clerk, Janey’s meetings were always organized and top-notch.
Thank you, Janey! We wish you luck in your new endeavors.
