WALBRIDGE - Village council is asking the Ohio Attorney General's opinion on whether the police chief and village administrator positions are compatible with one another.
As of last month, police Chief Kenneth Frost holds both positions.
"Obviously, some people think it is not acceptable," said Mayor Ed Kolanko said at last Wednesday's council meeting.
The mayor expressed his belief the two positions are compatible, but asked council to approve sending the matter to the state's top attorney.
"It is in my opinion we should put this to bed and put us all at rest," he said.
Kolanko, village solicitor Brian Ballenger and numerous council members have expressed confidence in Frost and have said he is "very qualified to hold both positions and he is doing an excellent job," according to council's March 20 meeting minutes.
Council unanimously agreed to refer the matter to the state.
"I know they are not going to have a quick turnaround" on the decision, Kolanko said.
Frost was hired as police chief in February 2011 and was made permanent village administrator in March after serving in the position on a part-time basis.
