works decision

The Hermann Board of Aldermen voted 3-2 in closed session Monday, May 3, to hire Jesse Geltz as the city's public works director.

Aldermen Derek LeRoy and David Faerber and Mayor Bruce Cox voted for hiring Geltz, while Alderwoman Susan Lenger and Alderman Jim Schirmer voted no. Cox's vote broke the tie.

The motion, made by Faerber and seconded by LeRoy, hires Geltz for 90 days as Hermann's public works director, with a board review at the end of that period. The trial period is set to take effect on Tuesday, June 1.
