CRIDERSVILLE — Two Cridersville officials, who have served village residents for decades, announced their plans of retirement.
At Monday Cridersville Village Council meeting, Village Administrator John McDonald and Fire Chief Ron Mertz made public their decisions to retire from their respective positions.
On Monday, Mayor Lorali Myers released McDonald’s letter of intent to retire to the councilors.
Work on one new park should start yet this year, while improvements to a second new park will likely wait until next spring.
Wapakoneta Breakfast Optimist members intend to start working this fall with city crews to develop the park at the site of the former Centennial Elementary School, a city administrator said.
A report from an elderly Wapakoneta woman has prompted police to warn other area residents of a possible scam.
Wapakoneta Police Clerk Denise Kohler said a woman living on East Pearl Street reported Sunday morning that a man claiming to have been her paper boy years ago came to her home. After presenting himself as a former paper boy, the man, who was described as being in his 40s, walked inside the house.
