Sun Valley hires new city clerk

California woman set to start in August

Express Staff Writer

    A San Francisco-based lawyer has been selected as the city of Sun Valley’s new city clerk.
    Alissa Weber currently works for HomeBase, a public policy law firm that works to end homelessness in the Bay Area.
    Weber replaces Hannah Stauts, who left to take a position as an event planner with the Killebrew-Thompson Memorial Golf Tournament.
    Weber has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of California and a law degree from Duke University. She has experience in grant management, strategic planning and development performance measures, Mayor DeWayne Briscoe said.
    Briscoe said he was pleased with her answers to questions on the application.
    “She’ll be an excellent addition to our staff,” he said.
    Weber was nominated by Briscoe at a Thursday, July 3, City Council meeting. The decision to hire didn’t require a vote because it was a mayoral appointment.
    Weber was chosen out of five interviewees, the mayor said, in part due to her excellent communication skills, poise and ability to multitask.
    Weber begins work Aug. 18.      
    Stauts worked for the city for one and a half years. She said she plans to continue her civic involvement with community outreach and work on several boards.   
    “I love local government,” she said.
