Special to the Press

Genoa Village Council will meet in special session April 27 at 7:30 p.m. to discuss whether to investigate a possible misappropriation of public funds.
Councilman Eric Hise, who asked for the special meeting, said Sunday that he wants council to look into a position held by a person working at village hall.
Hise would not name the person or detail specifics such as hours and pay until council meets. However, he said the person performs clerical work as well as part-time tax work.
“The job started as part of a county thing, being placed here. But it was supposed to end in January 2009 and the person is still here,” Hise said.
The problem, he claimed, is there have been no ordinances regarding hiring or pay brought before council; yet the person remains on the payroll.
 “I asked someone for her job description and they said there isn’t one they know of,” Hise said, adding the person works under the direction of Administrator Garth Reynolds.“People are being placed in jobs and the council isn’t being involved.”
Hise said this has been a concern of his for a while and that he approached Council President Dave Adams and Mayor Mark Williams to request a special meeting.
He has also spoken to Ottawa County Sheriff Robert Bratton and Prosecutor Mark Mulligan. Both, he said, are waiting for the result of Tuesday’s meeting before taking any action.
An attempt to reach Sheriff Bratton on Sunday was unsuccessful..

Oregon Fire Chief Bill Wilkins submitted his resignation to Mayor Marge Brown, The Press has learned.

Wilkins is retiring for health reasons, City Administrator Ken Filipiak confirmed Thursday night.

“I just saw it yesterday,” Filipiak said of the resignation letter. “It’s effective at the end of June.  That’s all I truly know.”

Brown is expected to announce Wilkins’ retirement at a council meeting on Monday.

“He’s done a good job,” said Filipiak. “He’s done a lot to advance training of personnel, and upgrading equipment under his leadership. We’ve gone from a 36-hour fire training standard to a 120-hour standard, effective Jan. 1. The community can feel very good that we have a highly skilled fire staff.”
