Willamina fills office posts

WILLAMINA — Debbie Bernard has been promoted to city recorder in Willamina, according to Mayor Ila Skyberg.

Bernard assumed recorder duties on an interim basis following the resignation of Sue Hollis.

Skyberg said she and members of the city council had been pleased with her performance and decided to promote her on a permanent basis.

In another front office move, the council last week approved the hiring of McMinnville resident Rochelle Roaden to fill an accounting position. She will be paid $24 an hour.

She previously spent nine years in a similar position at Spirit Mountain Casino. She will start Monday, Feb. 16.

Bernard and Roaden are joined in Willamina’s front office by Amber Deibel, giving the city three full-time office employees.

The council will next meet at 7 p.m. Thursday.
