Granville chief discusses squad cars and staffing

GRANVILLE — Granville police chief Kevin Moore this month said delivery has yet to be made on the new squad car purchased by the village. Additionally, he recommended that the village board repair the 2013 model before selling it. It may need a new torque converter, and a recall exists on its catalytic converter. These repairs will be pursued with Al Cioni Ford of Granville.

Also, of the four new part-time officers hired, two already are patrolling on their own. The remaining two continue to progress through their training and should be completed soon, Moore said.

Trustee Jeff Greathouse reported on estimates for an electronic marquee sign to be installed at the village entrance. In view of costs ranging from $20,000 to $30,000, the board determined to consider other possibilities.
