The July 14th special meeting of the Edgerton Village Council began with the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a prayer from Mayor Robert Day.
Council members in attendance were Tom Karnes, Pam Wampler, Leslie VanAusdale and Jason Gruver.
Council members began the meeting by going into executive session. Council members returned from executive session about 20 minutes later, without a decision made.
Council then voted on Village Administrator Dawn Fitzcharles’ recommendation of the temporary hiring of Trevor Lawson, to cover a hiring opening for the village, as a line worker. Council approved the hiring.
Lawson was hired effective the next day, until October 31, 2022, at $26.00 per hour. Fitzcharles said that Lawson has worked with the village before.
Council then voted to adjourn. A joint council meeting with the St. Joseph trustees will be held at 6:45 p.m., on July 19.
The village council will then hold a regular council meeting on July 19, at 7 p.m.
