ALBION – The Village Board voted on Wednesday to fill a vacancy in the Police Department by hiring an officer who has been working with the Holley PD the past 1 ½ years.

Robert Wagner is expected to join the Albion PD in about two weeks. He will fill the opening created when Sgt. Mark Luft retired in January. Wagner will be on a 52-week probationary period with Albion.

The board accepted 13 new members into the Fire Department, including Jeremy Babcock, Amber Boyer, Janet Cheverie, Robert Emerson, Paula Fuller, Laurie Gleason, Cindy Hunt, James Peruzzini Jr., Renee Rowley, Spencer Misiak, Barb Szklany, Kelly Szklany and Carol Tibbits.

Some of the new members are interior firefighters, while others will provide scene support and serve in the Ladies Auxiliary.
