Dodgeville City Council hires new City Clerk Treasurer
|The Dodgeville City Council approved the appointment of Lauree Aulik as the new clerk/treasurer for the city on Tuesday night. Aulik was appointed by Mayor Todd Novak and confirmed unanimously by the city council. |
Aulik will replace Lisa Riley who is stepping down to take the clerk/treasurer position in the village of Cobb.
Novak said Aulik is currently the Planning/Community Development Specialist in the City of Platteville. He said she has an impressive resume and over 15 years of public service. She was the GIS Coordinator/Land Information Officer in Lafayette County for five years and worked as a real estate specialist for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and also worked for Jackson County.
An Iowa County native, Aulik lives in the town of Highland and graduated from the Highland School District.
"Not only is her resume impressive but all her references spoke very highly of her and noted her dedication and ability to do any task assigned to her. I have no doubt Lauree will be a big asset to the city," said Novak.
He said she also has experience with elections, as she has previously worked at the polls for the town of Highland, along with completion of several election inspector training courses.
Riley will officially be done working full-time with the city on April 9, but will be available to assist Aulik through the months of April and May. Aulik will officially start on April 5, but will be working a day a week for the next two weeks while she makes the transition from Platteville.
"We are very fortunate to have someone that will no doubt serve the city well. I along with the council welcome Lauree aboard and we all look forward to working with her," said Novak.

He stated the top six reasons for dispatch were for transfers, falls, vehicle accidents, sick persons with breathing problems and COVID-19 transports. In January through March, DAAS had received 185 calls so far. Because of the pandemic, member exposure was a concern and Cushman noted that he had 23 members isolated to better handle calls, without causing further exposure. He noted that the exposures did not take place when staff were on call....
