New Robbins Employees

Two new Robbins employees took the oath on Thursday. Kim Williams, left, is the town's new finance officer and Julianna Sundet is the new town clerk. 

The Robbins Board of Commissioners on Thursday welcomed two new town employees.

Kim Williams, the town’s new finance officer, and Julianna Sundet, the new town clerk, were sworn in by mayor Lonnie English during the board’s regularly scheduled March meeting. The women were hired to replace Matthew Schuster, who had been pulling double-duty as the town’s clerk and finance officer. Schuster left the position in January to continue his education in Florida.

During a work session in January, the board approved a request from town manager David Lambert to divvy up the workload by hiring a second staffer to handle the clerical duties.

“Historically, these roles have been separate roles,” Lambert told the commissioners at the time. “I’m proposing that we return to having two separate full-time positions because of the workload.”

As finance officer, Williams will oversee three “complex grants” that were recently awarded to Robbins. The town is set to receive funding for cleanup and infrastructure projects through a $2 million Community Development Block Grant and a pair of grants totaling $400,000 from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

In other business, the board voted on a series of recommendations from police Chief Rob Tew involving the shooting range. The new guidelines allow the range, which is owned by the town, to be used from noon to 4 p.m. during a single Saturday each month for concealed handgun permit classes and organized shooting sports competitions for students at North Moore High School. Robbins police officers and officers from partner agencies will be permitted to use the range for training purposes from noon to 5 p.m. on weekdays.

Tew’s recommendations were presented in response to noise complaints from a couple of residents who live near the facility. The board voted 3-2 in favor of adding the new guidelines to the town’s shooting range policy.
