ST. CLAIRSVILLE — David Trouten, the Clerk of Courts for Belmont County, released the report of his office’s activities for September of 2018.

Trouten announced the retirement of Lisa West after 26 years of working in the Title Department.

"Lisa’s knowledge, dedication to customer service, and leadership are irreplaceable and will be greatly missed," Trouten said. "We just have to be thankful that she served as long as she did, and we wish her well in retirement."

The office hired Angela Souillard of Bridgeport to fill the gap, bringing it up to full staff.

"There is a steep learning curve," Trouten said, "but we are confident in Angela’s abilities and she is learning fast. It also helps that the timing of Lisa’s retirement came when things slow down a little in the fall. I am very proud of the excellent performance of my Deputy Clerks in both the Title and Legal Departments."
