STOW — Stow Municipal Court Clerk Kevin Coughlin created an informal Clerk’s Advisory Council to help steer improvements in the office.

According to Coughlin, represented in the group are the daily end-users of the Clerk’s Office: attorneys, prosecutors, law enforcement and the court’s judges.

“This council will allow me to draw on the experience and expertise of our stakeholders,” Coughlin said. “The feedback and suggestions we gain will help the Clerk’s Office better serve those who rely on us.”

According to Coughlin, the following have been named to the Clerk’s Advisory Council: attorneys James Armstrong, Donald Varian and Lee Schaffer; Summit County Sheriff Steve Barry; Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. William Haymaker; Stow Police Chief Jeff Film; Twinsburg Police Chief Christopher Noga; Stow Municipal Court Magistrate John Clark; and Tallmadge Prosecutor John Scavelli.

“These people and their peers interact with the Clerk’s Office on a regular basis,” Coughlin said. “Since entering this office last December, I have implemented several initial improvements to our process, staff structure and technology. As we begin the next phase of improvements, advice from those who use our court the most will be valuable. I’m grateful for their willingness to help.”

In the West Side Leader coverage area, the Stow Municipal Court serves the communities of Boston, Cuyahoga Falls and Peninsula.
