POMEROY — The Meigs County Commissioners recognized Clerk of Courts Diane Lynch during Thursday’s meeting.

Lynch submitted her notice of retirement to the commissioners in October, expressing her intent to retire from her position at the end of November.

Lynch was to leave the office at the end of 2016 after Sammi Sisson Mugrage was elected to the position to begin her term in January 2017.

Serving two terms as Clerk of Courts, Lynch had spent nearly three decades as a deputy clerk in the Clerk of Courts office prior to being elected. Overall she served in the office for more than 36 years. Lynch was presented with a certificate of recognition for her service to the county, as well as a clock and cake.

After recognizing Lynch, the commissioners approved the appointment of Mugrage to serve as Clerk of Courts beginning on Dec. 1, until the beginning of her elected term.

In making the appointment, the commissioners stated, through a resolution, that it was only fitting to appoint the Clerk of Courts-elect to the position as she was the individual selected by the voters for the position. This will also allow for a smoother transition to take place.

Diane Lynch, who has served as Clerk of Courts and deputy clerk for the past 36 years, will retire at the end of the month.
