LAKEMORE  During an emergency meeting of the village council members, council dispensed with three reads to introduce emergency legislation to approve for Mayor Rick Justice to enter into a contract with Walter Haverfield Attorneys at Law to become the village solicitor.

During the July 16 regular scheduled meeting, council members accepted the resignation of village solicitors Brouse McDowall, Irving B. Sugerman and Laura F. Fryan.

Legislation to possibly enter into contacts with two other attorneys were dismissed.

In the brief meeting, several other emergency pieces of legislation were approved that included the lease agreement with Huntington Bank for a 2018 Ford F-150 Supercab 4x4 with utility body. Justice said a lot of research was done on this truck to prepare for purchase and he thanked those who worked hard to do the best for the village.

Council members also passed legislation approving the third quarter blanket purchase orders.

The next regular council meeting will be held at 7 p.m., Aug. 20 at the Municipal Building, 1400 Main Street.
