CAMPBELL -- Dina Mangiarelli-Hamilton of Porter Avenue has been sworn in as the new clerk of city council.
She replaces Judi Clement, who retired a month ago after 32 years of service and was paid $39,000 a year.
Mangiarelli-Hamilton, 26, who was appointed by council and sworn in Wednesday for a two-year term, will start at $23,500 a year. Her responsibilities include taking and referring citizen complaints to the proper departments, doing research concerning city ordinances, typing ordinances and calling the roll at council meetings.
A lifelong Campbell resident and a 1993 graduate of Campbell Memorial High School, Mangiarelli-Hamilton attended Youngstown State University and, most recently, served as human resource manager at Babies "R" Us in Boardman.
Council President Robert Yankle said she was selected for the full-time position from among 24 applicants, partly because of her computer skills. One of the city's goals is to codify all its ordinances and put them on a computer disc, he said.

In other action, council authorized the acquisition and installation of a new water quality monitoring system at the city's water treatment plant, which has been recommended by the Ohio EPA now that the city sells water to Consumers Ohio Water Co. The system is to be paid for by a loan not to exceed $20,000 from the city's infrastructure and equipment fund.
Legislation was introduced Wednesday that would remove a traffic light at Struthers-Liberty Road and Blossom Avenue and install one at Struthers-Liberty Road and Sanderson Avenue near the new K-8 school under construction and scheduled to open this fall.
Other legislation was introduced to authorize a $19,000 local match toward a potential federal grant that would allow purchase of a $190,000 fire pumper truck.
Still other legislation was introduced that would authorize preparation of documents for the sale of the city's Anthem stock, new plumbing fixtures for the jail cells in the police department and the purchase of a one-ton 2002 pickup truck with a plow, a used high-reaching bucket truck and a new water department backhoe.
