Sandoval Police and Public Works Departments To Get Cell Phones

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

The Sandoval Village Board has taken steps to make it easier to reach the police department.  

Mayor Pam Gelsinger has been frustrated by not being able to reach police when they are on patrol and not in the office.  To help remedy the situation, the police department will now have a cell phone to take with them on patrol that will forward calls from the police number.  The village board also agreed to provide a cell phone to the public works department so they could be reached easier in the field.  The board will purchase two new portable radios for the police department to allow them better communications with the Marion County Sheriff's Department and other agencies.   

Gelsinger announced the CSX Railroad would once again pay the village $2,000 to mow their right-of-way through Sandoval this summer.  She also reported the village has been provided a second CEFS summer student worker.
