Geis signs contract with Union Township

Union Township trustees signed a contract to rehire former administrator Ken Geis to his old position during the board meeting Thursday, March 11. Ohio law does not permit rehiring of retired employees to the same position without a public hearing.

Township officials held a public hearing Wednesday, March 10 at which time board president Timothy Donnellon said he didn’t hear any objections to hiring Geis as administrator, only to the process used to rehire him.

“I appreciate those who came out on Wednesday to share input,” said Donnellon. “Those opposed were more upset with the interview process but did not appear to be upset with Mr. Geis.”
