The Grafton Town Board held a special meeting on Tuesday to discuss the hiring of a new clerk.

Amanda Schaefer said she will be stepping down as clerk at the end of June because of family commitments.

The board went into closed session to select a new clerk from three finalists and to determine the position’s salary.

Town Chairman Lester Bartel said Town Attorney Sara MacCarthy has been directed to prepare a written offer to the selected candidate. Bartel said the salary and name will become public record once the offer is accepted. 

Bartel said he expects the position to be filled in the next two weeks.

Schaefer has been clerk for seven years, while also serving duties as town planner. She has been involved with the town for 13 years, first working for Stantec, an engineering consulting firm in Mequon. She was appointed clerk in 2012. 

Bartel said the town will outsource its planner position to Stantec.

Schaefer will continue working with the town as a part-time employee of Stantec.

“She will probably be handling our planning as she did before,” Bartel said.
