Boller resigns from city council

By GREG SCELLIN
Signal Editor

The Geneva City Council worked through a light agenda at the council’s regularly-scheduled meeting on May 1.
Among the items discussed last week were:
• Two-term Third Ward Councilman Todd Boller submitted his resignation to the city council effective after the meeting. Geneva Mayor Rod Norrie has since given notice of the vacancy and is considering applicants for the post. Approximately one and a-half years remain in the term.
• Geneva City Administrator Kyle Svec reported that plans call for the Geneva Aquatic Facility to be open on Friday, May 26.
“Everything is on schedule, as we’ve been told by the engineers and contractors,” Svec told The Signal.   “Everything we have been told is everything is one the right pace.  Lifeguards, staff have been hired.  The pool is getting is filled.”
• Geneva Fire Department Chief Mike Grothe presented his quarterly report to the council.
• During his city administrator’s report, Svec informed the city council that Christopher Warnick has been hired as the city’s park and recreation department director.  Warnick graduated from Wayne State College in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in sports management.  He has been a recreation director in the Pearland, Texas Parks and Recreations Department (six-person staff) for the past 10 years.  He is a Columbus native and his wife is originally from York.
Svec said Warnick’s first day will be May 8.  And him and the rest of the city staff are excited for the help.
“It has been a bit of a burden at the office,” he said.  “But, I am also proud of how our staff has responded.”
