BUCYRUS—Bucyrus City Council met Tuesday evening in the council chambers.

Bucyrus City Council Clerk Megan Conley tendered her resignation effective September 1.

Conley has made it clear that she enjoys her work with the city. She told the council that if it had been possible, she would have stayed on as a clerk.

Conley, who got engaged in July, plans to move to Wickliffe to be closer to her fiancé and his family. They are planning a wedding in May.

In other council employment news, outgoing director of communications John Rostash introduced his replacement.

Bucyrus native Bonnie Welsh will manage the city’s Facebook page, livestream, Access TV and media outreach.

Welsh holds a degree in agricultural communication from The Ohio State University. Welsh arrives at the post from his old job as a front-end supervisor at Rural King in Marion. Welsh is also a 4-H advisor.

John Rostash will now serve as Floodplain Administrator for the city of Bucyrus.

In other cases, Councilman Mark Makeever reported that the Bratwurst Festival failed to place the usual four-way stop sign at Lucas and Poplar streets. Makeever cited the busy truck traffic on the street during the festival period as dangerous without the temporary stop signs. He said he had taken steps to contact the appropriate people to ensure this did not happen next year.

Even though Mayor Reser is on vacation, he left a letter congratulating the Bratwurst Festival Board on the success of its 55th event.

The meeting was adjourned after a break so that the board could discuss employment matters in executive session.
