Published:

A new clerk of courts has been named for the Stow Municipal Court.

Cuyahoga Falls City Councilmember Diana Colavecchio was appointed the new clerk of courts by the Summit County Democratic Central Committee at its meeting Jan. 8 at Cuyahoga Falls High School. Colavecchio will replace Lisa Zeno Carano, who resigned from the post effective Dec. 31.

Zeno Carano stepped down from her municipal court clerk of courts post to take a position as court administrator with the Summit County Court of Common Pleas Probate Division, working under Judge Elinore Marsh Stormer.

"I'm excited to join [Judge Stormer's] court," Zeno Carano told Record Publishing Co. Jan. 8. "I'm happy to take my experience to another court level."

Zeno Carano's six-year term would have expired Dec. 31, 2015.

"Lisa was great to work with . . . she really made a lot of changes that saved money [at the court]," said Stow Mayor Sara Drew.

According to the Summit Board of Elections, the Summit County Democratic Central Committee was scheduled to meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Cuyahoga Falls High School to pick a replacement.

The person appointed would serve in the position until the November election, when the unexpired term would be on the ballot.

Zeno Carano was appointed to the municipal court post in April 2007, replacing longtime clerk Eric Czetli who stepped down to take another job. She was elected to finish the unexpired term that November and was elected to a full six-year term in November 2009.

She had served as an At-Large Councilperson for the city of Tallmadge prior to being appointed to the municipal court.

Communities served by the Municipal Court District include: Boston Heights, Boston Township, Cuyahoga Falls, Hudson, Macedonia, Munroe Falls, Northfield, Northfield Center Township, Peninsula, Reminderville, Sagamore Hills, Silver Lake, Stow, Tallmadge, Twinsburg and Twinsburg Township.
