REMINDERVILLE -- The village's newest Councilor is also a recent resident.
Becki Kovach, who was sworn in July 11, moved to Reminderville from Twinsburg in 2015 with her husband. Kovach, one of four who applied for the position, was approved 5-0 by Council. She will fill the remaining term of Mark Silversten, who resigned from Council in June after moving to Twinsburg. The At-Large (all positions in the village are At-Large) term ends Dec. 31.
Kovach has worked at the Reminderville Athletic Club, served on the village's finance committee, and has volunteered at several Reminderville events. She said her "extensive background in local government" will help her in the role of Councilor. Currently, she serves as the assistant to the mayor in North Olmsted and has worked for various municipalities since 2005.
"I have worked on the administrative side my entire professional career, so this will be a good opportunity to use my skills on the legislative side," Kovach said. "I want to give back to the community and have a part in the future of our village."
Kovach said she plans to run again for a full term in November.
"I've actually already filed with the Board of Elections," she said.
Kovach said that she "immediately fell in love with the village" when she moved here.
"I'm excited about this opportunity and I believe my background and experience in local government will be beneficial to Council and village," Kovach said. "I want to continue to make the village a great place to live and raise a family."
Reminderville Councilors, outside the president and vice president, make $600 per month.
