After 45 years as a county employee in the Henry County Courthouse, County Assessor Shirley Wandling is retiring.

Wandling, who has served as county recorder the past 11 years, submitted her resignation to county supervisors Tuesday morning. Supervisors plan to fill the opening by appointment during a special meeting Friday, Nov. 3, at 9 a.m. in the supervisors’ office on the first floor of the courthouse.

The appointment would be effecive from Nov. 3, 2017, through the Nov. 7, 2018 general election.

Those interested in applying for the position must submit a resume and letter of interest detailing their qualifications to the supervisors by 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 13. Applicants must have lived in Henry County for at least 60 days prior to appointment.

Citizens still have the right to petition for a special election. Such petition must be filed with the county auditor within 14 days of the appointment.

County Engineer Jake Hotchkiss, in his weekly report to the supervisors, said the contractor is paving the remaining section of the Winfield Avenue reconstruction project and hopes to be finished paving by the end of the week. Following completion of paving, seeding work will begin and “punch-list” items completed.

Iowa Avenue is closed to through traffic, Hotchkiss said, for replacement of a culvert. The project is expected to take two to three weeks.

Shoulder-pulling work will begin on Agency Road from Benton Avenue to Salem Sept.18, Hotchkiss noted, which is the final shoulder pull project of the year.

Supervisors meet again in regular session tomorrow (Thursday) at 9 a.m. in the courthouse.
