Mayor’s Report

We look back on 2021, we reflect on the challenges of the year and look forward to a prosperous and healthy new year in 2022. 

The Fire Department has openings for part time firefighters.  For the month of November 2021, the Fire Department had a total of 118 calls for service.  Rescue/EMS – 70 calls, none of which required Narcan; Fire/Service – 17 calls; and Invalid Assist – 31 calls.  The Fire Department hosted the Safety Forces Open House and participated in the Lake Elementary Trunk or Treat in October.

The Police Department has openings for part-time patrol, part-time dispatchers and substitute crossing guards.  The Civil Service Commission will be having a Full-Time Police Officer Exam February 24, 2022.  Officer Andrew Mastrocola has completed his training and Officer Jacob Reik will soon complete his training. The Police Department held its annual “Fill-A-Cruiser” event.  Food was donated to Mentor Plains United Methodist Church’s food pantry and donations were used for the “Santa’s Blue Helpers” program.  Patrolman Wuchte retired on December 25th, after 34 years of service with the department.  We wish him well in his next chapter.
