Honoring 60 Years of Work in Johnson Co.
Updated: Friday, May 31 2013, 09:57 AM CDT
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- It's Betty Sass Day in Johnson County, as officials celebrate the deputy treasurer's 60 years of work for the county.
Sass began work in June 1953 as a clerk in the county's motor vehicle department. She was appointed deputy treasurer in 1975 and has held that position ever since.
The Johnson County Board of Supervisors' declaration of Friday as Betty Sass Day coincides with her 80th birthday.
She plans to retire her full-time job at the end of the fiscal year on June 30, but Treasurer Tom Kirz says she'll likely be called on to work during tax season.
Sass says she's always enjoyed her job and her colleagues, saying "we all have fun while we work."
