Town of Ocean City employee, Barbara Scheleur, has retired after contributing 16 years of dedicated service to the town. Her employment began in September of 2000, when she was hired as an administrative office associate in the Engineering Department.
Before joining the town, Scheleur held administrative positions at Advo, Inc and Wohlsen Dashiell. Her daily duties with the Engineering Department included managing the front desk, assisting her co-workers and greeting customers. Scheleur also was well organized and helped created a well flowing atmosphere for her colleagues and supervisors.
“I have enjoyed my time working for the Town of Ocean City and was privileged to have had an incredible boss,” Scheleur commented of City Engineer Terry McGean. “I also have had great co-workers in my department and throughout the town, who always work together as a team.”
McGean praised Scheleur during her retirement recognition at Tuesday’s Mayor and City Council work session “Barb has been the face of our department for the last 16 years, greeting our staff and our customers with a positive attitude and helpful manner,” McGean commented. “Although small in number, our department has large and varying responsibilities and Barb has handled them all with consummate skill and professionalism. She has kept our department running smoothing and she will be greatly missed.”
Scheleur’s retirement plans include traveling the United States, visiting family and volunteering her time. “My retirement is bittersweet,” Scheleur finished. “It was not an easy decision to make, and although I look forward to more free time, I will also greatly miss the people who have made my workplace a home for the last 16 years.”
