Swanton Fire Chief Howard Myers was suspended Monday for 15 days with pay, pending futher hearings. The suspension was approved at last night’s council meeting.
No reason was given by Rosanna Hoelzle, village administrator. The motion to suspend him referenced the Ohio Revised Code Section 733.35. That section pertains to the mayor filing charges against delinquent officers.
If a hearing were to take place it would occur the night of a scheduled council meeting. The next council meeting is May 9.
