|City of Taylorville aldermen appointed two new city superintendents Monday night after the retirement of lake superintendent Bart Bialas and airport and cemmetary superintendent Bill Newberry. The council also voted to move forward with altering the job description of one of those positions.|
The council voted 7-1 (Chris Skultety-no) to accept the mayor’s appointment of Geoffrey Ortman as the new Lake Superintendent. “I’ve never talked to this guy. I have nothing against him and think he’ll probably do a fine job, but I see a fault in this, voting for a person not knowing anything about him or not seeing a resume. I think the process needs to change, and everyone on the council needs to be involved. I can’t rightly vote for anybody when I know nothing about them,” Skultety said of his vote.
