Roberta Schmitt, a Collier Township employee who has held multiple jobs for more than 17 years, will retire at the end of the month.

Schmitt has been secretary since September 1995 and has worked as manager and interim-manager of the township over the years. She is scheduled to retire Dec. 28 but will stay on for about a month to provide training before walking out the doors for good, she said.

Her resignation was approved unanimously by the board of commissioners Monday.

When asked why she is retiring, Schmitt, who will be 64 on Jan. 31, said she felt it was her time.

“I just feel like I am at that stage...I want to spend some time with my grandchildren and my great-grandchildren. It is my time to go,” Schmitt said.

Bob Schuler, president of the board of commissioners, said he was sorry to see Schmitt retire.

“We all are,” he said.

Collier Manager Sal Sirabella said her departure will “leave a tremendous void at Collier.”
