11/8/17 – Columbus officials have filled the vacant city clerk position. The Common Council Tuesday night approved the hiring of Megan Moen. The opening was created when Ann Donahue, who announced her retirement in July, stepped down last month after serving as the full-time city clerk since 1988. City Administrator Patrick Vander Sanden says of the 31 applicants Moen was the best candidate for the job. He says Moen emerged as the most qualified person for the position and has experienced doing things efficiently. Moen had served as the Deputy City Clerk for Greenwood Village, Colorado and is a native of Lodi. Vander Sander says her experience will benefit Columbus. Moen is scheduled to start on Monday. The city is also looking to fill the vacant economic development director position. Vander Sanden says he is currently speaking with several candidates but nothing has been made official yet.
