Morenci will have a new city treasurer begin training Dec. 1.
Council voted 5-0 to hire Crystal White of Hudson to replace treasurer Stephanie Mossing. In a separate motion, council voted 4-1 to approve the salaried position paying $33,500 annually. Councilor Tracy Schell opposed the motion.
White will work with Mossing through December before Mossing leaves to take a job with the Village of Delta, Ohio.
White, a Hillsdale native, is a Madison High School graduate and recently earned a bachelor’s degree from Baker College.
She has work experience in manufacturing, with a non-profit and in a real estate office.
White said she looks forward to getting started in the new position, although she realizes it will be a daunting task to learn the city’s finances.
