Kee becomes tax collector
WAXHAW – Paula Kee was sworn in June 26 as Waxhaw’s tax collector.
Finance Director Lisa White recommended Kee for the position. State statute requires town boards appoint the collector.
“She has been here with the town since 2011,” White said. “I’ve been very impressed with [Kee]. She is very respectful and tries to help taxpayers wherever she can. She even calls people on her own, before there’s a penalty date, to remind them to pay. Even though she’s been the deputy for the last several years, she has done the lion’s share of the work.”
Kee filled the vacancy left by former assistant finance director Ann Sutton. Tammy Holland filled Kee’s roles as assistant finance director and deputy tax collector.
