Nancy English, UH clerk of council, retires
Effective Aug. 1, Nancy English, who has served as clerk of council for the City of University Heights for 20 years, is retiring. In an e-mail to residents, English said, “It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve you for the past 20 years. “
As clerk of council, English was the liaison for city council members, interacted with the public, and attended city council, board, commission and council committee meetings. She transcribed minutes, posted notices and served as secretary for the Planning and Civil Service Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals and Records Retention Commission.
“Nancy has been a delightful person to work with. She is very knowledgeable about the city’s operations and the functions of government,” said Mayor Susan Infeld.” A large part of her role as clerk of council has been to unofficially mentor the incoming city council members, the city’s department directors and the law directors she has served with over the past 20 years. She has managed multiple roles, such as secretary of the Board of Zoning Appeal, and secretary of the Planning Commission, in addition to her duties as clerk of council and has done a superb job of blending all her job duties seamlessly. She is generous with her time and knowledge and will be hard to replace.”
Mayor Infeld added that city council will interview three people for the clerk of council position on Monday, Aug. 6.
