SHELBY - Steve Lifer became the newest Director of Finance and Public Record on Friday afternoon when he was sworn in to his new position.

Lifer, 52, takes over the job after being appointed by Mayor Steve Schag with the approval of council.

Before Lifer took the oath of office, Schag shared a few opening words about Lifer.

"Mr. Lifer brings a diversified background to the office, ranging from a master's degree in business administration, to actually being involved in an agriculture business partnership himself," Schag said. "He is anxious to get started in this phase of public service."

"I appreciate all those who came out this afternoon and I appreciate the council for their support of me, and I appreciate those who are involved in the city at this time and all of their support," Lifer said. "The mayor and those in the finance department have been very supportive and all the other department heads have been helpful and will be helpful to me throughout my service to the city.

"I think this is a great opportunity to serve the citizens of Shelby and I do appreciate this honor," Lifer added.

After the ceremony Lifer shared what he will bring to the office of finance director.

"I have a master's degree in business and was an assistant school treasurer at Clearfork district about 30 years ago, and I think I'm energetic enough, and I think I'm a hard worker and I'm willing to learn and ask questions," Lifer said. "I think I bring that to office and I'm certainly willing to work with the current department heads.

"I think so far, things are working (in the finance department) so why change them; so I don't anticipate any changes in the way the city operates the finance office. I plan on working closely with those already in the finance office and all of us working together will be what is needed to do the current services that are provided now," Lifer noted
