MEDINA – Regardless of the dissolution vote on Jan. 20, there will be another village election in the spring with two trustee positions on the ballot.

The village election usually falls the third Tuesday of March, but this year that lands on St. Patrick’s Day. Because of that, the Village Board voted to move the election a day later to March 18, a Wednesday.

Trustees Mark Kruzynski and Mark Irwin both have their positions up for election.

Petitions are currently available at the village office. Petitions can be turned in to the village clerk between Feb. 3 and Feb. 10.

Even if dissolution is approved on Jan. 20, the village government will remain for an estimated two years to allow for a transition.

Besides setting the date for the next village election for March 18, the board on Monday also hired a new police officer. Edwin Bower comes from the Holley Police Department. He graduated from the Rural Police Training Academy last March. He will start at Medina with a salary at $44,712.
