Kim Kirby has been City Clerk long enough that not a single student at West Platte was born before she started. Her son, Coy, who was born after she started, graduated from West Platte in May.
In the closed session at the end of the Board of Aldermen meeting Monday, she submitted a letter saying she planned to retire next year. She started July 12, 2000.
