Entering the third year of her four-year council term, Wilson will serve as council president for 2006. Council executives in Clay City are elected by council members annually. She will replace outgoing president Roy Chenoweth, who served for two years. Chenoweth will remain a member of the council.
An LPN and office manager at the Clay City Medical Clinic, Wilson said a $4 million sewer project would be the biggest issue facing Clay City residents in the coming year. The county recently received grants and loans for the project from USDA Rural Development in the amount of $3,467,000. Council members must now raise the remaining balance through additional grants or face the prospect of raising water bills.
The Clay City Town Council meets the first Thursday of every month at 7 p.m.
