Colleen McCoy is ready for the challenges of serving as secretary/treasurer of the Manawa Fire and Ambulance Board.
“I am very excited about becoming the secretary for the Manawa Fire/Ambulance Service,” she said.
Recently, McCoy earned certification as a Wisconsin Certified Municipal Clerk (WCMC), after completing a three-year process through the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
She currently serves as town clerk for the town of Lind and as chair of the Wisconsin Towns Association (WTA) Waupaca Unit. She previously had served six years as secretary/treasurer of the WTA Waupaca Unit.
McCoy graduated from Leadership Waupaca County in 2010.
Her day job is working for Dr. William Twohig, a dentist in Weyauwega.
Prior to working for Dr. Twohig, she was employed for 15 years for Jay-Mar, Inc. in Waupaca before the company closed its Waupaca location.
McCoy succeeds Jackie Beyer, who served as the board’s secretary/treasurer since July of 2013. Beyer was appointed to the position due to the resignation of the previous secretary/treasurer.
“At the time, I was a board representative for the town of Little Wolf,” Beyer said. “I inherited an audit to prepare for, and an ambulance department checking account that was empty. I love a challenge, so I set to work. Sixteen months later, I am proud to report that the ambulance department is in a great financial position.”
“My decision to step down from the secretary/treasurer position was not easy, as I thoroughly enjoyed the job,” Beyer said. “Our town needed someone to fill the board position, and I accepted that duty.”
Beyer had recommended McCoy as her replacement.
“The addition of Colleen to our staff is a good fit,” Beyer said. “Her clerk experience is definitely going to be beneficial.”
