At the October 1 Board meeting, Trustee Bob Gruenewald was appointed to serve as mayor pro tem, a position previously held by the late Larry Reed. All votes were Yea.

In the law enforcement report on October 1, Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Justin Lilly reported that he responded to a call on September 19 at Casey’s when over $500 worth of merchandise was stolen. A female store employee tried to stop the suspect and got her leg slammed in the door of the man’s vehicle. Lilly was able to track the suspect down and charged him with aggravated battery and felony retail theft. Lilly also reported that after a nine-month absence, Kohl’s recently hired two loss-prevention officers, which has caused deputies to be called to the store every day.

At the September 17 Board meeting, Trustee Dave Wendt asked Deputy Lilly about possibly monitoring Hundley Road for speeders after Wendt said he observed vehicles moving at a high rate of speed traveling north on Hundley Road after turning from Weaver Road. Lilly said he would check it out.
