ONEONTA – For Katie Böttger, joining City Hall as personnel director will be something of a homecoming.
“I’m actually going to be a ‘returning’ resident,” she said, “as I attended and graduated from Hartwick College.
A Canajoharie resident, Böttger, who is due to be appointed Tuesday by Common Council, said not only is she village clerk in Ames, she also serves at tax collector and registrar of vital statistics for the village.
For the past two years, she has also served as a personnel associate at the Montgomery County Human Resources Department, giving her specific experience in the new responsibilities she will be taking on.
“While I love my job now,” she said. “I was very excited to be considered and ultimately selected for this opportunity and can’t wait to get to work for the city’s taxpayers once I am officially appointed by the Common Council.”
She succeeds Kathy Wolverton, who resigned in October 2015.
