Riverside has been looking at hiring a Deputy Clerk, a new position for the city, to help around the office and fill in when someone takes time off or has a sick day. At their meeting on Thursday night the council chose one applicant for that position. Teresa Sladek is now Riversides new Deputy Clerk. City Clerk Missy Carter says Teresa has over 20 years of customer service and bookkeeping experience. She will handle utility billing, answer phones and greet those visiting city hall. She will also be Carter’s back-up, so she’ll learn how to do payroll and bank reconciliation. She will start this position on Monday.
