He will remain as chairman of the Special Projects Sewer Committee. Eldon “Twirp” Williams also returns, having been returned to the board by a healthy margin in the April election. The Village also approved the hiring of Michael Catalano as the new Market Brand Director. His first day on the job will be May 26th.
