Learning of a resignation, extending congratulations and lending a helping hand to storm victims were on the agenda when the Wellston City Council met Thursday night.

As for the resignation, council members learned they will be looking for a new Law Director, as Shannon Weber announced he is leaving the position effective Sept. 28 to accept a position as an in-house attorney for Atomic Credit Union. Weber told Council he has enjoyed his tenure as law director and will be glad to work with his successor in order to make the transition a smooth one. Weber thanked council and Mayor Connie Pelletier for their professionalism and friendship, and wished everyone the best.

An extension of thanks was delivered by Mayor Pelletier to the Wellston Coal Festival Committee for their change of location. She says the comments she has heard have been nothing but positive. The committee, she continued, put a lot of time, effort and money into moving to Pride Park. A big part of the work was making sure the electric service was upgraded at the park. Pelletier noted, the festival is a credit to the community and wanted to acknowledge the committee's actions.

As for lending a helping hand, Wellston Fire Chief Ryan Pelletier told council the Wellston Water Rescue Team was to be dispatched to Texas to help hurricane victims, but the order has been rescinded. However, the chief stated the unit has been placed on standby again and will probably be dispatched to somewhere in the storm's path, whether it be Texas, Florida or another southern state, that has been or will be impacted by the violent weather.

Council also went into executive session for discussions on real estate and personnel issues, but took no action. The Wellston City Council will meet again Thursday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m.
