Bev West Sworn In And Begins Work As New Salem City Clerk

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Salem has a new city clerk.   Deputy City Clerk and Assistant to the City Manager Bev West has been sworn in to the position to replace Jane Marshall who retired last Friday.  

West has worked for the city of Salem for 21 years and was named Deputy City Clerk in 1996.   She was later elevated to Assistant to the City Manager where she handles a number of administrative duties including being the staff person responsible for working with the the Planning Commission.  West was also named Deputy Freedom of Information officer last year.  

City Manager Bill Gruen says West will continue in those administrative duties.  However, he is currently advertising for a person with general office skills who will help handle phone calls to city hall as well as assisting those who come to city hall and with utilities. Gruen says the pay rate will be $11 to $11.50 per hour.  Gruen says the reorganization will save the city about $20,000 a year.
