In brief

Goodrich council clarifies staff opening

GOODRICH — The Goodrich village council held a special meeting July 26 where they discussed the replacement of Ethan Campbell as Department of Public Works Superintendent, who resigned. During the discussion of that issue, it was not made clear their nominated replacement, Aaron Christner, was simply a DPW worker, and not the supervisor, and the village called another special meeting on Aug. 6 to clarify the appointment. Both Christner as well as the current full time DPW worker and any interested outside parties will be eligible to apply for the position of superintendent. — P.S.
