Friday will be Barbara Buck's final day serving as Latrobe's secretary and director of administration and finance.

Buck, who has worked for the city for 20 years, announced her retirement this week.

During her years in the Latrobe administration office, she's worked with five mayors, two solicitors and numerous council members.

“I've had the pleasure of meeting so many kind and caring people while working for the city, including members of boards and authorities and residents of Latrobe,” Buck said at Tuesday's council meeting. “Thank you for the opportunity to serve.”

Mayor Rosemarie Wolford wished Buck well and said she'll be missed as a “true part of this community. The knowledge and the experience that go out the door with her are going to be really impossible to replace.”

City Manager Wayne Jones agreed, noting, “If I need something, she knows where it is and she knows the history behind it. I definitely will miss working with her.”

Resumes will be accepted through the end of the month from those interested in taking on Buck's role.

“Hopefully, we'll have a good pool of candidates to interview,” Jones said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
