St. Joseph County’s Board of Commissioners has agreed to hire Lindsay Howes as the county’s grant writer.
Howes, who has most recently served as Three Rivers city clerk since 2007, was approved to the position Tuesday by the five-member commission.
A 32-year-old Three Rivers resident, Howes will be paid $50,000 a year, with $30,000 of the salary paid by the county, and the balance split evenly by the cities of Three Rivers and Sturgis.
Her employment is in an at-will capacity, according to a term of her contract.
The job has been vacant since Marcia Saunders left the post in April 2011.
