County Clerk G.R. Joll Retires

The recent resignation of Mr G. R. Joll from the staff of the Waitaki County Council marks the end of the career of a man who was noted not only for his efficiency but also for the wide grasp of his position.

Mr Joll's work on the background of the rural water schemes, although time consuming, was extremely valuable and along the same lines, his efforts over a long period of time involving the Otematata village take-over were also worthwhile. Mr Joll's greatest attribute however, was probably his clear and incisive mind and his grasp of the various statutes affecting the county. In private life, Mr Joll was for many years the treasurer of the Returned Servicemen's Association, he was the county Patriotic Society representative, and one of his great preoccupations was the planting of trees. Mr Joll first was appointed to the position of Assistant County Clerk in 1931, and then later became the Chief Executive Officer while still on active service in Italy. A short time ago after a period of ill health, Mr Joll retired from the position of county clerk and took over the office of assistant clerk again, handing over his former office to Mr A. Budd. However, ill health forced him into complete retirement and his, resignation was accepted with regret at the last meeting of the county council on Friday. (Oamaru Mail 3/7/1974)
