Lyon County will have a new treasurer starting Jan. 1, 2017.
Kathy Coursey was sworn in Thursday to replace retiring treasurer Denise Sutton. Sutton announced her retirement earlier this year.
Judge Executive Wade White swore Coursey in Thursday. She was joined by her husband Billy Ray Coursey.
“I’m pleased to be here,” Coursey said after the ceremony. “I’m excited.”
White said she was a good choice for the county, and commended Sutton’s work.
“Kathy won’t take over as treasurer until Jan. 1,” White said. “We’re glad to have her. She’s got a lot of talents and will make an excellent treasurer.”
A reception for Sutton will be held Thursday, Dec. 15 in the Lyon County Courthouse from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
