Mexico Beach votes on new city clerk

Published: Thursday, September 19, 2013 at 09:09 AM.

The Mexico Beach city council decided on a new city clerk this week, even if the results weren’t unanimous.

Adrian Welle of Pierz, Minn. will be offered the position this week.

Welle has experience working for the city of Upsala in central Minnesota, a city with a population of just over 400 people and received praise on his face-to-face interview with the council.

During a special meeting held on Monday the council gathered to discuss the candidates it had interviewed in the weeks since previous clerk Sharon McGhee’s abrupt resignation.

The council narrowed the list to three candidates before taking their official vote.

All members, with the exception of Mayor Al Cathey, voted to offer the position to Welle.

“I was impressed with Adrian,” said councilman Lanny Howell during discussion of the candidates. “He was my first choice.”
