Clerk of Council
Carol is the Council-appointed Chartered Officer of the City having the title of Clerk of Council. In this role, Carol is responsible for carrying out the duties connected with the Office of Clerk and those specified in the City Charter, Ohio Revised Code, and various City ordinances. Carol assists Council in the daily administration of the City and provides liaison with the public, other municipalities, and the department heads within the City government. Carol attends all regular and special City Council meetings, maintains legislative materials, ensures proper dissemination and retention of information and documents produced and received, assists in the transition to new administrations as they occur, prepares and distributes minutes and materials, meets filing deadlines, and performs other specific tasks and duties assigned by the President of Council.
Carol is no stranger to the City of Seven Hills, moving to the area as a seven-year-old child with her family when Seven Hills was still known as a Village, and can be considered an almost life-long resident. She completed her high school education in the local school system, graduated from the University of Dayton's School of Business Administration, and began her years as a Seven Hills public servant more than thirty years ago in the City's Law Department. She has gained considerable experience in various City Departments, has a thorough knowledge of the workings of our City government, serves as a Deputy Clerk for the Parma Municipal Court, Deputy Registrar for the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, Notary Public, and is further affiliated with Local, State, and National Municipal Clerk Associations.
Drawing on her varied background and many years of service with the City, Carol enjoys researching historical events and legislative actions of years passed. Recollections of working with many former City Mayors and Administrations, and with most of the City's ordinances, resolutions, and meeting minutes documented in the Clerk's Office and at her fingertips, Carol's home-away-from-home seems to fit like the proverbial "old, comfortable shoe".
