Boulder City Clerk Pamella Malmstrom announced today she will retire July 2.
Malmstrom, who was appointed acting city clerk in 2004, said she plans to leave on a two-month cross country trip immediately after her retirement.
She submitted her resignation letter Wednesday to the City Council and City Manager Vicki Mayes. The council will name a replacement.
Deputy City Clerk Lorenne Krumm said she couldn't yet say if she's interested in being appointed Malmstrom's replacement.
The city clerk manages the city's public records, runs municipal elections, coordinates volunteer boards and commissions and prepares all meeting agendas and minutes. The clerk monitors the state Legislature for the city.
Malmstrom last year was elected vice president of the Nevada Municipal Clerks' Association.
In 2001, she was a temporary office assistant at the city. That same year, she was appointed deputy city clerk. She was acting city clerk in 2004 and in 2005 was appointed city clerk.
Malmstrom was deputy city clerk when Mayes was city clerk and took over for Mayes when she became city manager.
Mayes said she'll miss Malmstrom's presence at City Hall.
"Pam has worked tirelessly to improve public access to city information and to provide for a more efficient citywide records management system," she said. "She has served as a dedicated, professional city clerk, and I am sorry to see her leave the service of the city."
Malmstrom said she plans to continue living in Boulder City and being involved in the community, including serving on the board of Lend-A-Hand.
She said she enjoyed the challenges and constant learning her position brought her.
"I've met so many fascinating people," she said. "This has opened up so many doors and opportunities for me."
