An empty seat remains on Hammond Board
For three months, a lone spot on the Village of Hammond Board has remained empty.
In August, Village Trustee Michael Artiaga resigned his post, citing continuing education as a limiting factor to his service.
Since the September Board meeting, the other six trustees have carried business on as usual.
Village President Vince Trudell said getting ready to appoint a new member took time.
"I didn't want to make a hasty decision," he said.
