The Marion Village Council, at its monthly meeting on Monday, approved its budget, to take effect starting on March 1.

“We had a hearing before the regular meeting, then we approved it,” council president Don Gillmore said.

The budget totalled approximately $405,000. It’s up slightly from what it’s been in the past, Gillmore said.

“The main thing is we have a third man in our DPW system,” Gillmore said. “He will be full-time for six months. The contract is for six months.”

The village will also be advertising for a new park manager. The position has again become vacant.

“Jack Nehmer did it for many years, then we had a different manager,” Gillmore said.

The village basically got through last week’s storm in good shape, Gillmore said.

“We didn’t have any trouble,” he said. “The snow is gone now.”

The village approved a variance for a new store south of the stockyard, Gillmore said.

“It’s going to be a convenience store,” he added. “That allows them to build the size of a store they need.”
