Snyder resigns from school board


BELLVILLE — The Clear Fork School District board of education approved a contract with a Lima firm which will be determining what environmental risks will need to be abated in construction of two new elementary school buildings.

The board at its most recent meeting also accepted the resignation of board member Jason Snyder, who will be leaving May 27.

The Lima firm, Allied Chemical Corporation, will determine if there are asbestos problems which will need to be taken care of in demolition of the two old buildings, which will be replaced, said superintendent Janice Wyckoff.

The project to build two new buildings will replace the one in Butler and the other in Bellville. It has gone through its schematic design phase, Wyckoff said. It is now in the design development phase.

Wyckoff said the project is on budget.

The board accepted the resignation of Snyder, and information about how to apply for the opening will soon be distributed, Wyckoff said.

People who are interested in applying for the position can fill out an application and send it in care of board president Jim DeSanto or take it to the board of education office on Hines Avenue.

The board will interview people who are applying for the position, Wyckoff said.

The person who fills the post being left by Snyder will serve through his term, which will be up in November. Then the person selected would have to run for re-election.
