UTICA — Two new members filled their seats on Utica Village Council at the start of Monday evening’s monthly meeting in council chambers.
Randy Schilling and Ken Kelley were appointed to a four-year term, filling the empty seats left vacant in 2013.
A lifetime resident of Utica, Schilling served one term on council in 1975 when he was the youngest council member ever at the time. “Right now I want to get a grip on everything that’s going on,” said Schilling. “Then I can also research issues and see what needs looked into.”
Kelley moved to Utica in 2009, coming from Columbiana. “I pastor a local church, and our church wants to serve the community. I figured one way to do that is to serve on council so I can find out what’s going on and determine how we can serve,” said Kelley.
