ELIZABETHTOWN — Elizabethtown City Council on Monday appointed a new city treasurer after a lengthy search.
Cheryl Buhr has taken over the reins of the position formerly held by Tara Cooper, who died suddenly in June while on vacation.
Buhr has been employed by the city since May, formerly serving as occupational tax auditor, said Elizabethtown Finance Director Steve Park.
Park interviewed roughly a dozen people for the role, which was later narrowed to about five applicants.
Park said the loss of Cooper weighed heavily on her co-workers but the position is in capable hands with Buhr.
