1. Kelli Danielli, formerly of the Public Works Department, was appointed Deputy Clerk at the council meeting on Oct. 9. Township records indicate there was no increase in salary for this position, meaning Danielli will continue to make $31,448. Because she had no prior municipal clerk experience, Danielli had to participate in a course titled, “Introduction to the Duties of Municipal Clerk,” a course with $745 registration fee.
2. For the first time in a month and a half, there will be no festivals in Smithville this weekend. The next events will be the pet parade on Oct. 27 and the Zombie Walk on Oct. 28.
