NORTH BALTIMORE - The village has narrowed the search for its next administrator to four candidates.
Mayor Mike Julien said he hopes to have the position filled by July 21.
The final four candidates for the position are: Donna Dettling, village administrator, Dexter, Michigan; Dennis Recker, village council member, Whitehouse; Robert Kellogg, former town manager, Sewall's Point, Florida; and John Mitchell, former city manager, Marysville.
The village is seeking to replace Kathy Healy, who is retiring.
Also at Tuesday's meeting, council heard comments from one resident on a rezoning request. Reineke Family Dealerships has made a request to rezone the former North Baltimore High School on Second Street for business use.
"I know anyone who is going to be against the re-zoning is going to be accused of being 'anti-business,'" said resident John Sponsler, who lives about a block away from the former high school site. 
"That should be prime residential property," he said.
If rezoned, Sponsler said, "I would think it would decrease the property values."
"There is all kind of space along Route 18 for a dealership."
"I am sure you wouldn't consider Findlay 'anti-business,'" Sponsler said. "I am also certain Findlay would not approve building a dealership in the middle of a residential district."
While specific plans have not been made public, a presentation will be made to the Planning Commission at 5 p.m. on Tuesday in the village council chambers.
Reineke currently has a dealership in town on West Water Street.
In other action, council:
• Heard that two public safety grants were received by the EMS Department ($6,250) and Fire Department ($1,500) for training and equipment.
• Approved offering paid positions to seven people to work for the EMS Department. Of the candidates, five are paramedics and two are basic emergency medical technicians.
