GERMANTOWN - A special meeting of the village board has been set for 6 p.m. Thursday, July 6, to review Village Clerk Barb Goeckner's performance. 

The department has been through four deputy clerks in the past year. 

The deputy clerks, in separate interviews with Now Media Group, have all expressed frustration with Goeckner.

In an interview with Now Media Group, one of the former deputy clerks said Goeckner was never in the office and "all the other departments were aware. They would ask, 'where's your boss again today?' "

"She was just a very unfair boss. She was one of those people who said 'do as I say, not as I do.'" 

Goeckner is supposed to be sworn in as president of the Wisconsin Municipal Clerks Association in August, but according to association policy, she cannot hold the position if she does not hold a position as a clerk or deputy clerk. 

In a letter on the WMCA website, association president Chris Astrella said of Goeckner, "I’ve been working with 1st Vice President Barb Goeckner as we begin our transition from my year to hers, and I know she’s going to be a great president." 

The special meeting Thursday night is being held in closed session.

More information will be released as soon as it becomes available.
