Mayor appoints assistant city treasurer
City Treasurer Droucy Rougeau has decided to retire, effective January 2010.
On Monday, Mayor Bob Morris appointed Becky Thibodeaux Hill as assistant treasurer, preparing, he said, for Rougeau's retirement.
Hill has most recently been FEMA coordinator, preparing the plethora of documents necessary to qualify for reimbursement of expenses related to Hurricane Gustav cleanup.
She joined the city in June as an assistant in the Recreation Department.
Rougeau has been with the city 18 1/2 years. She said she reached the retirement decision while taking some time off last week.
Hill is from the Indian Bayou-Rayne area. Her career had been in mortgage banking and finance before returning to this area. She and her four daughters most recently lived in Fort Washington, Penn.
