ST. MARYS — St. Marys City Councilors put in a little work on Monday.
Councilors approved, under suspension of rules, an emergency ordinance approving the appointment of Craig Moeller as the city’s interim safety-service director. The measure also waived the requirement for Moeller to be a licensed professional engineer, which is a requirement under the city’s codified ordinances when it comes to the safety-service director position. However, City Law Director Kraig Noble noted waiving the requirement has been done in the past.
