Schroeder offers to fill in as clerk/treasurer on part-time basis

By Chad Koenen


The Henning City Council accepted a pair of resignations by city employees on Monday night. 

During the special city council meeting, the council accepted the resignations of city clerk/treasurer Kim Schroeder and utility tech/public works maintenance worker Jake Williams. Schroeder’s last day with the city will be on May 6 and Williams’ last day will be April 28. The two resignations are the sixth from the public works, office staff and police department since the start of the year in the City of Henning. 

While Schroeder resigned her full-time position as city clerk/treasurer, she was willing to stay on staff in a part-time capacity until a new employee is hired. 

Henning Mayor Darren Wiese said the city is required by state statue to have a city clerk/treasurer, but could fill that position on an interim basis, as well as have someone from the League of Minnesota Cities to fill the spot if needed. 

The city council agreed to hire Schroeder on a part-time basis as a clerk/treasurer to fill in the gaps as necessary for the position of clerk/treasurer. She will also train in her replacement when a person is hired.
