PEMBERVILLE - Randy Ross, water superintendent in training, was terminated from his post Thursday, Council Member Randy Rothenbuhler, who heads the village personnel committee, told council Tuesday night.
Ross allegedly murdered his wife, Amy, March 27 in a domestic dispute in neighboring Ottawa County. Ross then turned the gun on himself and remains hospitalized in Toledo.
Council Member William Long said the village's Board of Public Affairs Monday night began the process of hiring someone else for the position.
Ross was hired in January and was still a probationary employee at the time of his firing.
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Rescheduled its next meeting from April 16 to April 23 at 7 p.m.
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Approved a new mower contract for $1,035.58.
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Agreed to pay Rick Beeker $344 to remove eight tree stumps in the village.
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Announced swim lesson sign ups will be April 20 and May 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The location has not been determined.
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Agreed to spend $3,022 to repair two pipes at the swimming pool that are believed to be responsible for the pool losing four to six-inches of water per day.
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Learned the Wood County Park District has sent the village a check for $11,800 to pay for a new pool heater and new fixtures in the changing rooms of the bathhouse.
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Heard the Dodge Durango used by the police department was scrapped for $400. Some items were removed from the vehicle by the village before it was scrapped.
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Learned the Finance Committee will explore the possibility of obtaining credit cards for the village. Rothenbuhler said the discussion will include who will get the cards, how they will be used and limits.
