Quorum Court appoints Hopper as tax collector
Carroll Countyís new tax collector is no stranger to the role, or to county government.
The Carroll County Quorum Court, in a special meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 5, voted 10-0 to appoint Vicky Hopper to finish the term of the late Kay Phillips-Brown, who died Dec. 28.
Hopper, who was sworn in the next morning by county clerk Connie Doss, first went to work in the collectorís office in 1984 and was appointed in a similar fashion to serve as collector in 1986.
Phillips-Brown was elected later that year and served from 1987 until her death last month.
Hopper also has worked in the county treasurerís and assessorís offices. She and her husband live north of Berryville and raise cattle and turkeys.
