TAYLOR, Mich. (WXYZ) - Taylor is less than five weeks away from a primary election and five months from a general election, yet there is no city clerk to run the voting process.
The clerk’s office is down to two-fulltime staff members after the city clerk abruptly left the position last month. Councilman John Delo is in a rush to fill the vacancy. When asked when is the latest it could be done, he responded, “yesterday.”
Taylor’s Mayor, Jeff Lamarand, sees differently. “Might be an extra body that can help do some stuff, but they really aren’t going to know how to help or where to help. And my concern is them getting in the way of the process,” Lamarand told Action News.
Council will meet next Tuesday to discuss the situation, but there is concern the process might not go smoothly. Council members and the mayor have been known to butt heads with each other . “The possible people who have been suggested to fill that clerk vacancy could cause some dissension,” said Delo. “It could cause some significant dissension. ”
Nex Tuesday’s council meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. in the council chambers.
