Troy City Council elects President, Clerk of Council Pro Tem


TROY — Members of the Troy City Council elected council member Bobby Phillips to serve as President of Council Pro Tem, and council member Lynne Snee to serve as Clerk of Council Pro Tem, during their regularly scheduled meeting held on Tuesday, Jan. 2.

Council members also approved an ordinance officially employing Clerk of Council Sue Knight, who took the oath of office at Tuesday’s meeting. The meeting was also council’s first meeting with newly-elected council member Susan Westfall and new council president William Rozell.

In other business, council members also adopted a resolution authorizing the sale of surplus personal property items by the city, using internet auction sites. Items that are obsolete or unfit for the use for which they were acquired will be sold; the sale of items valued at over $1,000 requires council approval.

Council members also adopted a resolution authorizing a memorandum of understanding with the Troy City Schools regarding future educational and recreational opportunities for residents within the Troy City School District, and a resolution authorizing a contract with Mannik and Smith Group Inc, of Maumee, for environmental services for the investigation and clean-up of the abandoned gas station property at 100 West Market Street, at a cost not to exceed $250,000. The cost will be reimbursed by a grant.

Council members Kristie Marshall and Lynne Snee abstained from voting on the memorandum of understanding, due to working for Troy City Schools. Council member Todd Severt abstained from voting on the gas station clean-up, based on a professional conflict.

Council members also heard an update on the city’s schedule for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 15.

“City offices are closed,” Director of Public Service and Safety Patrick Titterington said. “The city council meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 16. Trash and recycling will remain on schedule.”
