WAYNESFIELD – A pair of Waynesfield Village Council members Monday took aim at eliminating health insurance benefits for the mayor or any other elected village official, but they fell a vote short of a tie.
During Monday’s meeting, councilor Bill Motter made a motion to eliminate insurance for the mayor, which was seconded by Cheryl Jerew. Mayor Mike Ridenour is the only village elected official who receives any benefits paid by the village. Motter stipulated that if the motion passed that it be as an emergency, or that it would take effect immediately.
