Holiday Hills hires Joseph Landers Jr. as new treasurer

HOLIDAY HILLS – The Holiday Hills Village Board hired a new treasurer Thursday afternoon.

Joseph Landers Jr. is a certified public accountant, providing tax and accounting services out of his McHenry-based office. He has a master’s degree in taxation from DePaul University.

He was picked from the three candidates interviewed because of his qualifications, Village President Daniel Drury said.

Former Village Treasurer Tami Chesler resigned because she said her full-time job was taking more of her time, Drury said.

She worked about 15 hours a week for $13.50 an hour, and Landers is willing to take the same pay, he said.

Landers, who has lived in Holiday Hills for 10 years, is winding down in his career and looking for something different to do, Drury said. Money wasn’t really a factor for him taking the position.

The Village Board also interviewed two law firms at its meeting Thursday. Drury expects to make a recommendation to the board Monday at a specially called board meeting.
