Chandlerville Board hires new attorney
The Chandlerville village board voted at last week’s regular meeting to hire Beardstown attorney T.J. Wessel to provide legal services to the village. Wessel replaces longtime Chandlerville attorney Jerry Tice. Wessel attended last month’s board meeting and had discussed the position with the board. Mayor Tim Richard emphasized the village’s desire for speedy resolution of legal issues to Wessel.
Tice was informed of the change prior to the meeting. Richard said Tice had left the door open to the village in case his assistance was needed. The appointment comes at a time when the village is considering updates to the nuisance violation ordinance and a new rental property ordinance.
