Milford City Clerk Linda Stock dies

Milford City Clerk Linda Stock died Saturday morning, according to Milford Now.Linda

Stock, who was in her third-term as city clerk has been very ill for a long time. Stock has been a city employee for the past 24 years, including 19 years in the Planning and Zoning Department, with a decade as the zoning enforcement officer.

Linda Stock joined the City of Milford workforce in October 1990 as a clerk in the Planning and Zoning office, moved on to Secretary, then Administrative Assistant to the City Planner, and finally became the Zoning Enforcement Officer on November 10, 1997. She decided to run for office and became the City Clerk of Milford in November 2009, where she is thoroughly enjoying continuing learning and meeting new people.

Last November, she was reelected to a third term as city clerk.

In announcing her re-election bid last year, Stock said, “The City Clerk’s office has been on a continuous improvement track for the past three years with both physical and virtual upgrades.  The Parsons Building office has been reconfigured to address safety and customer service issues.  From a customer perspective, several self-service features have been incorporated including the on-line availability of land records.

“We have made good progress at cataloguing our records for online usage and the work in this area continues,” said Stock.  “Three years ago everyone had to come in to the clerk’s office during regular business hours to retrieve documents.  Customers can now view records from the comfort of their homes and offices 7 days a week, 24 hours a day and can securely purchase certified record copies.”
