Toni Burton has been hired as Hodgenville City Clerk.
City Council approved the recommendation of Interim Mayor Kenny DeVore Monday and Burton began her duties Tuesday.
Three of the council members screened applications, narrowed the field to seven applicants, and forwarded their top-two selections to DeVore.
Her employment is provisional on the outcome of a drug and credit screen and a background check. She will be on probation for one year.
“She won’t be sworn in until those come back,” said DeVore.
