Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS - JANELLE JESSEN

WEST SILOAM SPRINGS, Okla. — The Board of Trus­tees voted to hire Kathy Os­bourn as town man­ager at a re­cent meet­ing.

The board also voted to al­low Mayor Elaine Carr, Vice Mayor Larry Williams and City At­tor­ney Jot Hart­ley to ne­go­ti­ate Os­bourn’s salary and ben­e­fits. The salary and ben­e­fit pack­age will be dis­cussed by the board Aug. 10.

Nine can­di­dates ap­plied and seven were in­ter­viewed dur­ing a spe­cial meet­ing July 6. Hart­ley said Os­bourn also will con­tinue to serve as town clerk, an elected po­si­tion. Hart­ley ex­plained Os­bourn can hold both po­si­tions un­der Ok­la­homa law be­cause the town clerk doesn’t have a vote on the board, and the town man­ager is ap­pointed, not elected.
