During a special called meeting last month, the Rockford Town Council conducted interviews for a full-time town clerk.
After conducting interviews, the council voted to hire Leslie Nelson as the new town clerk. Nelson is filling the vacancy left by the resignation of former Town Clerk Jennifer Tindall.
A lifelong resident of Coosa County, Nelson and her family live in the Weogufka area. Her official start date as Rockford town clerk was December 20, with Tindall’s last day being December 31.
Regarding the new hire, Mayor Scott White stated, “She will make a great addition to the town. She is excited to help in leading town efforts.”
Susan Rogers remains the part-time town clerk for Rockford.
Also, separate from last month’s special meeting, White and the Town Council wanted to clarify information from its regular December meeting regarding town employees receiving a $500 bonus each from the town’s COVID-19 relief fund.
The eight employees who received the bonus were Bill Smith, former town maintenance employee; Jennifer Tindall, former town clerk; Susan Rogers, part-time clerk, Police Chief Jamie Hammond; police officers Ricks, Coley and Ogletree; and Earl Jones, maintenance employee.
The next regularly scheduled monthly meeting of the Rockford Town Council will be held at 6 p.m. January 18.
