Silver Lake Village Board OKs separation agreement with village clerk/treasurer

silver-lake-VHThe Silver Lake Village Board unanimously approved a separation agreement with village Clerk/Treasurer Terry Faber Wednesday night.

Trustee Carolyn Dodge was absent.

Details of the agreement were not immediately available.

Village President Bruce Nopenz said the agreement is effective March 4. The agreement includes severance pay.

Faber has been village clerk/treasurer for 11 years.

In replacing Faber, Nopenz said he intends to explore reassigning duties among the remaining two full-time employees within the village office.

“You don’t need three full-time people,” Nopenz said. “This village is small.”

Faber was present and performed her customary duties at the regular board meeting. She, however, locked the office and left the building when the board adjourned to closed session to discuss the agreement. After about 30 minutes of discussion, the board reconvened into open session and had the vote.



  1. The hits keep coming..... says:

    Let me see if I have this correct. The dissolve now group doesnt like Silver Lake’s police department ,Fire department,Rescue squad , or Village clerk, But they love to ice skate? How long until we are part of Salem?

  2. Really, Roger was there? says:

    Really, Roger was there?

  3. Bernard Punsley says:

    An observation could me made that Roger is “skating on thin ice”. He apparently has attached his “lifeline” to the Gerber/Eldon team. Remember that old tune “slip slidin’ away”……………

  4. Sl Goverment says:

    Roger Johnson had many committees he was on for the village. He did not have meetings or do his job as committee chairman. The president released him from his duties and got someone in there that will do the job.

  5. Why teams Bernard? says:

    Why is it Bernard and others have to put together a “team” ? Why not focus your time and energy on what’s best for the residents of the Village instead of bullying town clerks or others?

  6. Sam posey says:

    Hey Bernard so nice to hear u recant old songs from the past remember the temptations hit ball of confusion That’s what you now have along with a Zamboni ice machine which by the way the ice is to thin to drive on! Rock on bernard
