ELIDA — Mayor Ron Klopfenstein told Elida Village Council members Tuesday he had narrowed the search for a new police chief down to two candidates.
“By the next meeting, I will present a new chief of police,” Klopfenstein said. “Either one of the final two I have selected would be very good for our village.”
Christine McNamara reported that the Halloween festival was a success and in attendance were 190 children.
“We did receive a refund and letter from Mark Miller with Elida Schools stating they were waiving the fee for the rental of the gym. The refund was for $32,” she said.
Council heard on first reading an ordinance setting the salaries to be paid to elected officials of the village. Payments are effective Jan. 1, 2014, to and including Dec. 31, 2014, as follows:
— Mayor - $7,000 (equal monthly installments);
— Council - $2,450 (equal quarterly installments); and
— Council president - $2,800 (equal quarterly installments).
A second ordinance outlining salaries and setting pay rates to be paid to the non-elected employees of the village of Elida was read.
Other items included: employees will be furnished work clothes, determined upon need, at the discretion of the village administrator. The benefits shall include a basic single plan medical insurance to include term life insurance for regular full-time employees. Employees who select a family medical plan will pay the amount of $100 per month towards the family plan premium.
The ordinances was approved unanimously.
The next council meeting is set for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 26.
