Barberton quickly replaced retired safety and personnel director Elizabeth Daugherty.

Mayor William Judge appointed Daugherty’s assistant, Jaime Iceman to the seat with little fanfare. There was no press release and no announcement to city council. Judge confirmed the appointment in response to a direct question at the June 20 Committee of the Whole meeting.

Unlike previous holders of the position, Iceman has no experience in any safety service; the chiefs of both the fire and police departments report directly to her. However, the position heads two departments, also serving as the city’s human resources manager and Iceman is one of the first to hold credentials in that area.

“Many of the previous directors didn’t have HR experience,” Judge told The Herald. “With two chiefs and the knowledge of the Streets Department and others, the safety side is covered.”

Iceman will receive $81,120; Daugherty was bringing in $104,979.26.

“Iceman graduated from Barberton High School in 1995, and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from Ashland University. She is certified as a Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP), an internationally recognized standard in the field of human resources.

Iceman has a total of almost 10 years in the field, with the last three in Barberton’s Department of Human Resources.

“She is on the Board of Directors for Community Support Services and serves as an advisory council member for the Barberton Salvation Army and volunteers for many community events, including the Mum Festival,” Judge said.
