Genoa Police Chief Randy Hill has been placed on paid administrative leave.
Genoa council members took action last week following an executive session Nov. 16.
The decision to place Hill on leave was confirmed Monday afternoon by councilman Dave Adams. But he and Village Administrator Garth Reynolds referred any further questions – such what brought about the decision and who is temporarily in charge of the department – to Mayor Mark Williams.
“The mayor is the one that is basically in charge of the police department,” Adams said.
Telephone messages were left for the mayor as well as village solicitor Brian Ballenger. Neither had responded by deadline.
Hill was hired in October 2008. He currently is paid $49,200 annually.
