Monroeville council is looking for a new member, the board might have to look for a new police chief and residents will no longer elect the person in charge of finances.

It's been a busy couple of weeks in the village.

Former council member Karen Reer said since she's moved to Norwalk, she was no longer a council member as of June 1. Village officials are looking to replace her. Reer was on council for six and a half years and had a year and a half left. Her replacement will need to fill out her term.

"I enjoyed it immensely," Reer said.

Police Chief Gary Lyons said he's also enjoyed his time at Monroeville, where he's served for three years. He's in the running for the same position in Battle Creek, Mich.

"Professionally I wanted to see, before I got too much older, if I might qualify for a larger police department," the 62-year-old Lyons said. "Battle Creek seemed to be a nice fit."
