MINOCQUA – The Minocqua town board didn’t have to search far, or long, to find a qualified candidate to fill the newly appointed post of town treasurer.
This week, the board offered a 3-year contract to Kim Strasburg, who has worked in the treasurer’s office the past two tax seasons. Her expanded duties begin April 17.
The board did not post the position externally as they had hopes Strasburg would accept it. “We were happy she took it,” said town clerk Roben Haggart. The appointment marks a departure from decades of having an elected town treasurer.
