The Twin Lakes Village Board is poised to eliminate a residency requirement for village administrator Jennifer Pollitt.
At Monday’s Village Board Committee of the Whole meeting, the board discussed changing Pollitt’s employment agreement to eliminate the residency requirement. Previously, village administrators were required to live within the village within six months of hire as a condition of employment.
No board member objected to eliminating the requirement, but some had suggestions.
Trustee Sharon Bower said she would prefer there to be a residency requirement similar to that for police officers — where residency in Kenosha, Walworth or Racine counties is required.
Trustee Kevin Fitzgerald suggested offering an financial incentive for employees who are village residents.
“I think there is a benefit to having employees who want to live in town,” Fitzgerald said.
Another change to the agreement considered Monday was changing Pollitt’s last name in the agreement to Frederick. She is getting married this weekend.
The agreement changes will be voted on by the board at a future meeting.
