After nearly 30 years of service, Patricia Pekar will be retiring at the end of June as the Scioto County Child Support Enforcement Agency attorney.
In that position, Pekar has been responsible for administrative hearing duties of the Scioto County Child Support Enforcement Agency.
Before taking on that role, Pekar worked for the Bureau of Child Support in Portage County, Ohio, and worked for the City of Cleveland before that.
“I’m going to miss the people I work with; we’ve got a good group here. I’m also going to miss the satisfaction of being able to handle support cases,” Pekar said. “We have a job that is oftentimes thankless. Oftentimes, we are dealing with very emotional people, but when you are able to get the job done it is a very good feeling.”
Pekar’s last day on the job will be June 30.
“We are not hiring another attorney to take my place. We’ve contracted with the Scioto County Prosecutor’s Office to take on the additional duties,” Pekar said.
Pekar said she will now spend more time with her family, ride her motorcycle and do some traveling.
