Mokena Appoints New Finance Director

MOKENA, IL — The Mokena Village Board of Trustees unanimously voted at its Monday meeting to approve the appointment of Sharon Dangles as finance director to replace Barbara Damron, who is retiring in January.

Damron, a lifelong Mokena resident, has been employed by the Village since 1985, according to Village documents.

Dangles, of New Lenox, has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Governors State University, according to Village documents. She previously worked for the Village of Oak Brook and the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District.

Dangles will start her new role effective Nov. 8, which will give her time to work alongside Damron before her retirement. Dangles will earn $137,564 a year, according to Village documents.
