The Marquette Council agreed at a special meeting May 6 to advertise for a full-time city clerk following the sudden departure last week of Sue Weipert, who served as city clerk for roughly seven years.

Mayor Larry Breuer said two former city clerks—Denise Schneider and Maryanne Trudo—are on board to consult the city until the position can be filled.

The council agreed to pay each woman $45 per hour for up to a combined 12 hours of work per week, with Schneider putting in eight hours and Trudo four.

Breuer said he and councilwoman Pam Brodie-Fitzgerald have also been helping at city hall.

“I think, with the hours we’re putting in, we can keep the city open most hours until we get someone full-time,” he said.
