Clerk retires…

Van Wert Municipal Court Clerk Deb Lichtensteiger (shown above, right, with Judge Jill Straley) recently retired after 32 years of service. Lichtensteiger had served with the court at all three of its locations in town. She began her career when Municipal Court was a small room on the third floor of the Van Wert County Courthouse (where the adult probation department is now), then moved with the Court to 124 S. Market St. (formerly the post office) and was instrumental in the move to the court’s current location at 102 E. Main St. Megan Ryan (shown taking the oath below), who has been with the court for 12 years, will replace Lichtensteiger as Municipal Court clerk.
