MARENISCO TOWNSHIP - After nearly a year without an official full-time lead in law enforcement, the Marenisco Board of Trustees on Monday unanimously approved the hire of James Webber as the town's new police chief.

Webber, who was hired as part-time support about a month ago, will start his new full-time role on July 1. Monday's vote was unanimous with town clerk Donna Kenney describing Webber's service thus far as "just awesome."

"I do love your township," said Webber. "You've got a tremendous amount to offer people."
