From staff reports
PETERSBURG - The town clerk was promoted last week to be this southeast Marshall County municipality's new recorder, officials reported Thursday.
Angie Taylor was selected from eight applicants considered during the Board of Mayor and Aldermen's meeting held on Dec. 12, according to Alderman Brad Dillenback.
Alderman Kenneth Boles moved for Taylor's election. The board wanted someone with three years of experience as a bookkeeper.
Taylor succeeds Dawn Forlines who resigned Nov. 9 when she had an opportunity to return to work after 2-1/2 months of paid administrative leave.
Taylor started part-time with the town about 10-1/2 months ago. Before that, she said, she was helping her husband in his business. Randy Taylor is now self-employed as a parts route truck driver, selling auto parts.
The Taylors have been married 26 years and are Petersburg residents. They have four children. They are: Brandy Rudy is a kindergarten teacher at Westhills Elementary School; Nathan and Britt Taylor are in college; and Josh Taylor is an 8th grader at Cornersville School.
"They are my life," said Angie Taylor, a member of the Friendship Church of Christ.
Other applicants for the town recorder's position included: Mary Dempsy, Tennille Wright, Patty Dalton, Shela Melton, Amanda Callan, George Goulis and Connie Amos.
Also during the monthly board meeting, aldermen:
* Decided to adopt a new set of rules and regulations for the Water Department to clarify ambiguities such as the rate for an apartment when it's in a house with only one meter.
* Discussed a drainage tile on College Street. The pipe and drainage issue were resolved the next day.
Meanwhile, the annual Petersburg Christmas Parade was scheduled for Friday night, Dec. 16.
