REMINDERVILLE — Village Council recently authorized payments to OHM Advisors for engineering and inspection services for three paving projects.

Legislators also adopted a resolution to hire OHM Advisors as the village’s engineering firm from Jan. 1, 2018 to Dec. 31, 2019. All engineering and consulting by the firm will be billed in accordance with the agreement’s rate schedule.

In personnel matters, Council named Stacey Task as community events/senior activities coordinator, effective Dec. 3. She will be paid $500 a month, and will continue to serve as administrative assistant / clerk of Council.

"For years, I’ve volunteered at community events and have helped plan senior activities, so now I have an official title," Task said. "We will continue our traditional community events such as the Easter Egg Hunt, Family Fun Day and the Santa toy delivery, plus annual senior events.

"I love planning the events and seeing residents enjoy themselves with their families. The seniors always are a fun group, and one of my goals is to get more seniors from Reminderville and surrounding communities to join us at the RAC for activities and parties.

"Mayor [Sam] Alonso is very passionate about bringing the community together for fun occasions and keeping seniors involved and active, so I’m very excited to get started in continuing down that path." 

Council also promoted Debra Hybil and Kristen Low to lead positions at the Reminderville Athletic Club. Hybil will receive $11 per hour and Low will be paid $12 per hour.
