The resignation of Town Clerk/Treasurer Kim Harris highlighted the Valley Grande City Council meeting on June 3.

Wanda Champion was approved by the council to succeed Harris, who will appear at city office three times a week until starting her job in August. Harris began working in Valley Grande in 2018 when Matt Dobbs was mayor. 

With tears in her eyes and speaking under a cracked voice, Kim Harris said she enjoyed working with the Valley Grande City Council.
