Styninger Promoted To Lieutenant At Police Department
By Alex Haglund
The Nashville City Council’s second meeting for November, rescheduled from Thursday, November 16 to Monday, November 20, was a very short one, lasting for around seven minutes all told.
While there was no business for the council to vote on for the Police Committee, “we promoted Brock Styninger to Lieutenant,” Police Chief Brian Fletcher announced. “We still have two officer opening that we are looking to fill.”
Fletcher also stated that the new squad car, a Ford Taurus-based Police Interceptor, was having the necessary equipment installed into it, and would be in service in the next few weeks.
For water and sewer, city utilities superintendent Blaine Middleton told the council that the locator box from the department’s boring machine had gone out, and he said, since 2014, the company that makes it no longer services that box.
Middleton said that the department would need a new locator box, but because of how recently the current one had gone out, he had not yet done the necessary research to provide the council with what they need to approve the purchase of a new one at this point.
For the golf course, council member Doug Hargan said, “they got the new fairway mower. They love it!”
Hargan said that the course had not yet had an opportunity to actually mow with it, because of how late in the year it was, but they had taken it out and it runs like it was brand new.
Before the meeting adjourned, Mayor Erik Rolf told the council that he had received a flag from the office of Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner.
“It is to celebrate the state’s 100th anniversary,” Rolf stated, saying that the flag would be placed on the city flagpole during a ceremony on December 4, at the same time as similar ceremonies around the state.
Illinois celebrates its bicentennial in 2018, but the observance will be for a full calendar year, which is why the flags have been distributed now.
