ELIZABETHTOWN, Ind. — The town council of Elizabethtown has begun searching for a new clerk-treasurer after the resignation of Gail Greathouse, who is facing federal charges of wire fraud and filing a false tax return.
"Right now, the position is officially empty and we are in process of trying to find someone who can fill it on a temporary basis. Then, we want to find a resident of Elizabethtown to take over permanently," said Fred Barnett, one of three town council members.
At a council meeting earlier this week, town officials said they'll get some interim financial help from the Bartholomew County auditor's office and advice on training the next clerk-treasurer from Shirley Robertson, who was clerk-treasurer for the town of Hope.
