Board reviews new village job descriptions

By on June 14, 2013

ELBURN—With the addition of a finance director to the Elburn village staff, Village Administrator Erin Willrett developed a new job description for her position, the finance director and for the other village managerial and staff positions.

Village President Dave Anderson said the creation of a separate position to deal with the village’s financial matters would free up Willrett’s time to focus more on marketing the village to potential businesses and developers.

During a discussion of the descriptions at the Committee of the Whole meeting on Monday, village trustee Jeff Walker asked that the language describing Willrett’s role in marketing the village and economic development be made stronger.

The board will approve the new descriptions at a future meeting, and they will be included in the personnel manual when it is updated in November.
