CORDOVA -- Mayor-elect Dean Moyer told village board members Thursday night that he is making progress on a new village hall.
Mr. Moyer, who has long favored buying a building from Design Homes of Eldridge, said he has drawn up a new plan that includes a basement to be used for storage. A bid from a concrete company will be needed before he can present the plan to the Planning Committee.
In other business, trustees discussed former village clerk Sharon Peterson who walked out of the April 18 meeting following a wage dispute. Mayor Bob VanHooreweghe said that, when Ms. Peterson did not come to work April 19, he appointed Deniese Womack to the post.
Ms. Womack won the position in the April 9 election and had yet to take over the clerk's work.
On Thursday, Mr. Moyer said he is concerned about how much time the village would have to protest any unemployment claim by Ms. Peterson. Mayor VanHooreweghe said he was not aware if she has filed for unemployment and the village has not received written notice of a filing.
