FORT LORAMIE — During their regular meeting, July 10, members of the Fort Loramie Village Council changed the August meeting date.

The council will meet Aug. 9, at 8 p.m., in the council chambers at 14 Elm St., Fort Loramie.

The council also voted to contract with Lexipol LLC to give Fort Loramie police access to the Lexipol Knowledge Management System at a cost to the village of $470 per year.

• Following a discussion in executive session, voted to promote John Puckett to part-time police sergeant at a pay rate of $18.10 per hour and to pay starting police officers at the rate of $14.16 per hour.

• Heard reports concerning the need to remove an antenna from a water tower; that Michael DeLoye had been sworn in as a part-time police officer; that when football practice begins, the school system will take over from the village the mowing of the grass in Redskin Park; that the Zoning Board of Appeals had decided not to put sidewalks all around the school; and that an old water line which was discovered during drilling for traffic lights at Elm and Main streets will be capped.
