It's the time of year when City officials are reappointed by the Clinton City Council and Monday night Clinton's Commissioner of Public Safety announced the resignation of its Fire Chief.
Chief Jeff Hoke has accepted a job out of state and submitted his resignation over the weekend. Dan Ballenger informed the Council Monday at the City Council meeting and indicates he will need some time to get someone appointed to that post.
Other appointments Monday night include Stephen Page as Assistant Fire Chief, Steve Myers as City Attorney, Tim Followell to the position of the sexton of the cemetery, Cheryl Van Valey as City Clerk, and Clint Lichtenwalter as City Treasurer.
Residents may be noticing the increase in golf carts around the community now that the weather is nice enough for them to be out. Commissioner of Streets and Public Improvements Ken Buchanan reminds they were legalized in city limits late last year.
Monday night the City Council also approved the sale of surplus property at 1003 East Washington Street.
