Hamilton replacing city clerk

        HAMILTON — Unspecified differences have led to the retirement of City Clerk Linda Landi.

        Both sides have agreed not to discuss the deal. But according to the settlement, Mrs. Landi was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday until Feb. 19. After that date, Mrs. Landi will use vacation time until Feb. 28, when her retirement be comes effective.

        Under the agreement, the city denied violating Mrs. Landi's rights and she agreed to hold the city free of any lawsuits, debts, claims or charges relating to her employment with the city.

        Councilman George McNally said Mrs. Landi was an “outstanding employee in an intolerable position,” meaning she had seven bosses on city council. City council has appointed deputy city clerk Linda Kuntz acting clerk while it searches for a replacement. She said Wednesday she might apply for the job.

        Mrs. Landi, whose duties included recording and preparing minutes and preparing agendas for council meetings, made nearly $55,000 a year.

        Mr. McNally said the clerk's office has a backlog of at least 70 sets of minutes from meetings that have yet to be prepared. He suggests the city hire a court reporter to pick up the load.

        “We have to hire additional personnel,” Mr. McNally said, despite a city-wide hiring freeze.

        Mrs. Landi, who began working for the city in 1968 as a clerk stenographer in the utility engineering department, spent the last 15 years as city clerk.
