The Newspaper did not have a reporter there last night at the “Special Meeting” of the Village Board in Cleveland. The Board did not swear in the New Mayor and Board because the County Clerk had not certified the Election Results from the recent Election. Those results were going to be certified and mailed out by the close of business yesterday.
In other Business the Board did vote to disconnect Jim and Linda White from the Village. Jim White asked for a delay to get advice from Council but that request for a temporary delay was ignored. Former Mayor White noted that his request has been ignored for the last 14 months and asked why the rush now but got no answer.
Attorney Paul Keller from Ancel, Glink, Diamond, Bush, DiCianni & Krafthefer, P.C. Informed the Board they had not met the statutory requirements to vacate the Board Seat of Trustee Taren Komadina. Village Attorney Graham Lee agreed with him and indicated that there was a 60/40 chance if it went to court the Village would not prevail. After discussion and a closed session The Board decided to take no action in replacing Trustee Komadina. WORD ON THE STREET is that The Board’s chosen replacement backed out or the appointment would have taken place ignoring the Attorneys advice.
The Board also voted to give Resident Dave Nunn a $50 gift Card as a way to thank him for all the Work done last year for Mowing and Ground Maintenance done in the Village. Mr. Nunn did a wonderful job making the Village look better than it has for years. The Board did not hire him last year and could not legally pay him for those hours as a result. The Board Voted to Hire Mr. Nunn this year for that work.
