Mexico Beach votes on new city clerk

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

Cathey offered to reach out to Welle with a job offer as well as the other candidates to inform them of their application status.

Welle had previously told the council that if hired he would be available to start Nov. 1.

Provided that Welle accepts the position, the council will ask him to consider starting his new role as soon as Oct. 7.

The starting salary for the city clerk position will remain at $50,000 annually with a six-month probationary period.

McGhee was just a month into her tenure when the mayor made a motion to fire her and cited a slow learning curve as a reason.

McGhee said that she didn’t fully understand her job responsibilities and was given “conflicting information” by various city employees.

Leading up to the hiring of Welle, the council spent several meetings drafting a new job description for the city clerk and a contract detailing the role’s many responsibilities.
