Archbold Village Council is seeking a replacement for Drew Ginn, who resigned from his seat.

Council discussed his resignation at its Monday, March 16 meeting.

BradGrime, mayor, said Ginn has accepted a job offer in South Carolina.

Donna Dettling, village administrator, said council has 30 days to name a successor; if it does not make an appointment in 30 days, the mayor appoints someone.

To qualify, Dettling said the person must have been a resident of the village and a registered voter for two years. The appointee’s term would end on Dec. 31, 2021.

Kevin Morton, council president, said council would like to conduct interviews in late March, then announce an appointment at the Monday, April 6 council meeting.

Interested persons should submit a letter of interest, either by email or hard copy, to Dettling by Saturday, March 28.

Ginn was elected in the 2017 general election. He was the third-highest votegetter in a five-way race for three council seats. It was his first run for office.
