Eh, maybe not…

subject: Hey Idiot,
Don’t suppose you noticed the village website was off line this morning. Now there’s no link through to the Village Manager’s Office. And they been having executive session personnel meetings hot and heavy lately. Methinks they hired a replacement, probably Dave Van Voren, who used to work here and was replaced by Dave Fieldman.
Anytime you wanna wake up and smell the coffee, bro.
Can’t say about the website being down, but the VM link is definitely cold. My recollection is van Vooren is a likable guy, and started around the same time as Petrarca, 2002 or so, and he was the Deputy Village Manager. One budget session, maybe ’03 or ’04 he was on the hot seat, right when Rita Trainor started, maybe her first year.
The last time DG hired a VM, the two finalists were announced and introduced. Nothing along those lines yet. Council needs to make a call soon. Having the new hire in place before the ’09 budget workshops begin makes sense.
UPDATE Wed 9/24: Council met in closed session again last night, Red. MT
