After having filled the position of Deputy Clerk for the Village of West Unity for almost nine years, Kim Grime has recently stepped up and taken on her new role as the Village’s Fiscal Officer. While Kim grew up in Waterville and graduated high school from Anthony Wayne in Whitehouse, she is a familiar face in the Village of West Unity, where she has now resided for 28 years. Those whom have ever met or worked with Kim will also note that she is not only familiar; she is also a friendly and pleasant person who always has a heartfelt and genuine smile for everyone she meets.
Aside from being a member of the West Unity Chamber of Commerce for two years and a member of the Three Arts Club in West Unity for fifteen years, Kim also makes time with her family; including husband Willy and her children; Stephanie (Jeremy) Gearig, Marci (Jake) Grime, Brian (Lesley) Frederick, and Aaron Grime. Kim is also the proud grandmother to two granddaughters and three grandsons.
Having vacated her previous position as the village’s Deputy Clerk to step into her new role as Fiscal Officer, Kim acknowledges that the new position has been a lot and that she, at times, has been overwhelmed but also expresses her gratitude towards Council and other Village Employees, saying that she feels “fortunate that everyone in the Village Office has been supportive of her as well as that they have provided her with good resources in the form of other Fiscal Officers if she has questions or is in need of assistance”.
Kim is also excited that her previous position as Deputy Clerk has recently been filled by yet another familiar face in West Unity, Katy Baltosser. Katy will be leaving her position at Farmers and Merchants State Bank to fill the role and Kim says that she is “excited to have Katy on board and is looking forward to the help”. Katy will begin in her new position later this month.
