If help is needed, a retiring Fayette village worker is willing to lend a hand.
Tom Rupp told village council members last week at the committee-of-the-whole meeting that he’s willing to work part-time after his impending retirement to help keep the village sewage system operational.
Rupp reminded council members of the state requirements for sewer operations and he said he could fill a gap in licensed workers.
Village maintenance supervisor Tom Clemensen agreed that it’s a good idea for council to consider because he and Matt Moats have not yet obtained their licenses.
Rupp stated that he also has certification for mosquito pesticide application. His offer is to work as an independent contractor.
Clemensen told council that snow plowing procedures have been updated and will be given to maintenance personnel.
Chief of police Jason Simon suggested adding more lighting around the park concession stand due to a recent break-in. The door will have to be replaced at the building.
Advertising for a new village administrator will wait until January. In the meantime, Clemensen will continue to serve as interim administrator.
• Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the next village council meeting will be moved to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22.
