Past growth means change to village clerk

By on May 13, 2011

ELBURN—The Elburn Village Board on Monday discussed changing the compensation of the village clerk from an hourly wage to a salary.

At the present time, the village clerk, an office held by Diane McQuilkin, is an appointed one. Once the population exceeds 5,000, the village clerk becomes an elected position at the next election, in April 2013. The board will update village code to set the salary at $5,000, the rate which has been billed by McQuilkin for the past three years. This rate cannot be increased during the elected clerk’s term of office.
