Former Kane County Board member Maggie Auger was appointed Algonquin’s village clerk at the Nov. 18 Algonquin Village Board meeting.
Auger, a retired attorney, most recently served as a Kane County Board member, representing District 23 for two terms. Prior to that, Auger served the village of Algonquin for 18 years with roles on the Economic Development Commission and the Planning and Zoning Commission.
“Maggie has a long history of service in the Algonquin community,” said Acting Village President Debby Sosine. “Her integrity, dedication, and experience serving on many different boards and advisory committees, along with her background in law, check all the boxes of what an individual will need to be successful in this role.”
Auger’s appointment fills the vacancy left by longtime Village Clerk Jerry Kautz, who passed away in October.
Auger’s term will run through April 2021.
The village clerk is an elected position with administrative responsibilities for the day-to-day activities of the Village Clerk’s Office, which are managed and carried out by village staff.
The more-public aspects of the position include roll calling during public meetings, overseeing the local election process, taking minutes, certifying village agreements, and administering oaths of office for village officials.
