Same job title, different city.
Winnebago Deputy City Clerk Megan Boeck will be the new deputy city clerk of Wells effective on Jan. 13.
Boeck has been with Winnebago since April 2008. She started as an accounting assistant and was promoted to deputy city clerk in March 2010. In 2014, Megan will complete her training to become a certified municipal clerk.

"I feel very blessed to have been here for almost six years now," Boeck says. "It really has been fantastic."
Winnebago city administrator Chris Ziegler will handle filling the vacant position after the New Year holiday.
Wells started advertising for the position in early November, according to Wells city administrator Robin Leslie.
"It was one of the main duties I knew I would have to look into when I took this job in July because everyone knew Debra Redman was retiring," Leslie says. "It is helpful that Megan is a local girl. She knows the people in the Wells community already."
Boeck co-owns Ron's Plumbing, HVAC & Electric with her husband, Amos Boeck, in Wells. She also graduated from United South Central, so she has a firm grasp on the Wells community.
Originally from Kiester, she currently resides in rural Easton. According to Leslie, Boeck will be doing all of her deputy clerk duties she is used to, but will also be assisting with special projects and community development as well.
"It was a tough decision to make," Boeck explains. "Winnebago has supported me through both ups and downs. The residents are generous and caring. But, I am looking forward to the change. It will be more convenient for my family."
