Jacobsen Named Clerk/Treasurer in Horicon

12/2/11 – Horicon has a new clerk/treasurer. The city council last night approved the promotion of current deputy clerk/treasurer Kristin Jacobsen to the top spot effective January 1st. Jacobsen, who’s been with the department for 12-years, replaced Dave Pasewald who retired from the position earlier this year after more than 30-years on the job. The council also had further discussions about trying to preserve the job of police officer John Krentz. As part of the 2012 budget approved earlier this week the police department is losing one full-time officer. However, the city’s finance committee and the police union have been in discussions to save the job and there is a proposal from the city on the table that would do just that. The two sides are slated to meet early next week and if a deal can be reached before the end of the month Krentz may be able to stay on the job.
