Ed Deyermond Appointed Clerk In North Haven Village

Jun 24, 2015 10:03 AM

Sag Harbor Village Trustee Ed Deyermond will return to a former post next month as he takes on the position of clerk in North Haven Village.

Mr. Deyermond, who first served as North Haven’s clerk from 2001 to 2006, will begin the job July 1, Mayor Jeff Sander and current Village Clerk Georgia Welch confirmed this week.

Ms. Welch will be retiring after nearly 30 years of working for North Haven Village but will stick around until the end of July to help Mr. Deyermond make the transition. “I’m 65. My time has come, and I need to move on,” she said Tuesday of her retirement.

Mr. Sander said the village had approached Mr. Deyermond to see if he was interested in taking on the position, since he had previously held it and would not need as much training. “We were looking for people we knew that had experience and felt were good candidates for the job,” the mayor said.

“Georgia’s been there for so long, she knows all the people. She knows the village better than anyone, so she’s going to be missed a great deal,” the mayor added.

Mr. Deyermond, who did not return a call seeking comment, was recently reelected for another term as village trustee in Sag Harbor. Mr. Sander said his work as a government official there would not conflict with his work as clerk, as Village Attorney Anthony Tohill had researched the matter extensively. When Mr. Deyermond was clerk the first time around, he also served as Sag Harbor’s mayor.

Mr. Deyermond has also worked as an assessor for East Hampton Town and as the sole assessor for Southampton Town. He held the latter position for 11 years, from 1990 to 2001, and again from 2006 to 2011.

Mr. Deyermond lives in Sag Harbor, on the East Hampton Town side.
