SHICKSHINNY, PA — Amy Evans, a resident of Sugar Notch and part-time secretary-treasurer of Briar Creek Borough, accepted a similar position with Shickshinny on Thursday night after council voted 3-2 to offer her the post that became open with the resignation of Wendy Kramer.
The vote followed the majority-minority line on council. Rosalie Whitebread, chairperson; Michael Steeber and Jim Wido voted to retain Evans. Councilman Kevin Morris and Councilwoman Kathleen Llewellyn voted no.
Steeber called Evans “the most qualified person” to apply for the job. He said Evans during the interview process requested a salary of $17 per hour.
“In light of her experience and her ability to take over the job right now, we believe her salary request is reasonable,” Steeber said.
