MORRISTOWN — Valerie Harman has been hired as code enforcement officer for the town and village of Morristown, filling the vacancy left by Lanetta Kay Davis’s resignation last fall.

Timothy C. Tuttle, Oswegatchie code enforcement officer, filled in from Nov. 5 until Mrs. Harman took over Jan. 14.

Mrs. Harman is a veteran code enforcement officer.

After serving as a code enforcement officer for 10 years in Florida’s Putnam County, she moved to Rossie last spring with her husband to be closer to his family.

“I wanted to get back in code enforcement,” Mrs. Harman said. “When this job became available, I applied.”

Mrs. Harman said she also worked with Mrs. Davis, who helped her get certified in code enforcement in New York because her Florida license wasn’t enough.

Mrs. Harman is starting out at 30 hours a week and will be paid about $27,000 a year.

“I don’t do this for the money,” she said. “I do this because this is what I know. I want to feel like I am contributing to the community.”

Mrs. Harman will have office hours from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to noon Friday at the Town Hall.
