Town Clerk Announces Retirement

After nearly four decades on the job, Carolyn Kett has announced her retirement from the position of Fort Erie’s Town Clerk effective August 31, 2014.

“I have been privileged to work for the Town of Fort Erie for all of these years in such a wonderful community and with so many amazing people” Kett said, adding “I look forward to enjoying more time with my husband and family.”

Kett started with the Town in 1977 as a Switchboard Operator and was eventually appointed Town Clerk, a position she has held since 1988. Over the years, Kett has served seven different mayors, dozens of councillors and was a key member of the Technical Advisory Committee that oversaw the design of the Municipal Centre. More recently, Kett was an active member of the Senior Management Team and led the transition to an electronic Council agenda.

“Carolyn’s expertise is unmatched and she has earned the respect of her peers in Niagara and across the province”, stated Mayor Doug Martin. “We thank her for her long and loyal service to the community and wish her well in retirement.”

The process to recruit a replacement will begin immediately.
