VILLAGE OF CORRALES HIRES NEW LIBRARIAN, BUILDING INSPECTOR

Village of Corrales Mayor Jo Anne Roake announced today the Village has made two important new hires: Marian Frear will become the new Corrales Public Library director; and Lee Brammeier will take over the responsibilities as Corrales Building Inspector. Both will officially begin their new duties on July 16.

"Both of these new Village employees come to us with established professional experience and excellent recommendations. Both are highly skilled in their fields and will be making major improvements in the service the Village can offer its residents," said Mayor Jo Anne Roake.

Frear, who served as director of the Placitas Community Library for more than seven years, holds a masters of library science from the University of Washington in Seattle. She wrote in her application, "I am committed to the library's expanding role as a meeting place and community center as well as to its traditional role of informing and educating and inspiring people of all ages."

"Making the decision on the library director's job was difficult because we had so many qualified applicants. I think Marian will be an excellent fit our Community Library because of her skills, background at the Placitas Community Library and her enthusiasm for the work," said Mayor Roake. Frear replaces long-time librarian Edwina Tafoya, who recently retired.

Brammeier, who has worked for the Pueblo of Sandia, Los Alamos County and the City of Albuquerque, has 26 years of experience and is a New Mexico State Certified Building Official, as required by
the New Mexico Construction Industries Division.

"Brammeier holds state certifications in framing, residential building and electrical. He is working on mechanical and plumbing certifications also. That means that Corrales will soon be a full-service building inspection office," said Mayor Roake. "He comes to us highly recommended." The Village is currently experiencing a mini-building boom of sorts with many permits out for renovations, solar installations and new construction, she added.
