Lyon County Treasurer Dora Hartig was honored by her family, her co-workers and members of the public for her better than three decades of service to the county at a special reception Friday.
Both incoming treasurer Sharon Gaede and one-time treasurer Lula Hunt say Hartig's personality made her the right fit for the job, both for employees and patrons.
Hunt was treasurer when Hartig was hired and taught her the job's ins and outs, telling Hartig early in her career she would ascend to the position. Gaede, meanwhile, worked under Hartig for 18 years before being elected last fall.
Hartig has told KVOE News she doesn't feel she has to step away. However, she is looking forward to more time with her grandchildren especially with the holidays approaching.
