Local resident hired as city clerk, filling eight-month vacancy
BY SUSIE CURRIE — Congratulations to Hyattsville resident Laura Reams, who began her job as city clerk on December 10. The post has been vacant since April 30, when longtime city staffer Doug Barber left to become Rockville’s city clerk. Filling director-level positions is the next priority, says Mayor Marc Tartaro. A city administrator is likely to be the next major hire, followed by a director of public works.
