City Clerk's Job Future Uncertain After ArrestSubmitted: 04/18/2012

RHINELANDER - "There goes my job."

That was Rhinelander City Clerk Mary Carley after being arrested for Disorderly Conduct - Domestic Abuse earlier this month, according to a police report.

But after a special closed session of the City Council last night, no action has been taken, although all options remain on the table, alderman Joe Salzer told Newswatch 12.

On April 6, police responded to a call from Carley's husband, Jere Carley, that Mary was "throwing things around the residence."

The Carleys had been married just a week and a half before.

Jere Carley told police that his wife, in a fit of stress, began destroying the inside of their mobile home, but Oneida County District Attorney Mike Bloom says he will not press charges.

It's not the first time Mary Carley has been in the middle of controversy.

Then-City Administrator Bill Bell asked for her to be dismissed after allegedly smoking marijuana and lying about drug use.

She kept her job then, but is now under further review by current City Administrator Blaine Oborn.

Newswatch 12 will continue to follow this story.
