Sandoval Board Fills Two Positions and Discusses Dead TreesThe Sandoval Village Board Tuesday night made two appointments to vacant positions in the village.
A new part-time police officer was formerly hired during the meeting to replace former part-time officer Grant Green, who took a job with the Marion County Sheriff's department. The new hire, Sandoval native Jacob Boggs, has already begun his training at the department.
A Mayor Protemp was also appointed during the meeting. A Mayor Protemp acts as a kind of "vice mayor" and assumes the duties of Mayor when the Mayor is absent. Mayor Pam Gelsinger appointed Councilman Chris Jones to the post.
The board also heard an update regarding the use of city resources to remove dead trees from private property. The village attorney says that if the city opts to use city resources to remove the trees it will set a precedent that may leave the city liable if they remove some trees but not others. The issue will be discussed in committee later this month.
