Changes are on the horizon for the village of Sycamore

SYCAMORE — Council member Summer Rhoad made her intention to resign known via letter of resignation, which was read by Mayor Vicki Weininger.

According to the letter, Rhoad stated she was moving out of the village and the Aug. 27 meeting would be her last as a member of council.

Council member Darcy Zimmerman and president Tony Flood both announced that they will not be running for their expiring council positions as Zimmerman will be starting a job with Wyandot County Board of Elections and Flood will be running for mayor.

To date nobody has filed to run for the open positions and though the regular ballot deadline has passed anyone can sign up to run as a write-in candidate by Aug. 26.

Veteran Heritage Foundation Treasurer Tom Eyestone gave a presentation during the meeting to bring awareness of the VHF.

He shared pictures from work the group has done at the Old Sycamore and Betz cemetery to repair tombstones and monuments. Eyestone said there were more than 400 headstones in the county that needed repaired and the VHF is accepting donations to help defray the cost.

In other business:

• Council approved a master services agreement for circuit rider services with Amp.

• Sycamore Fire Chief Rodney Clinger said three new members will be sworn in at the next council meeting.

• Zimmerman announced the Halloween parade is to be Oct. 26 an trick-or-treat will take place 6-7:30 p.m. Oct. 31.
