Carey’s Fiscal Officer is staying put. The Courier reports village council rejected Mayor Armand Getz’s bid to replace Nickie Coppler during their Monday meeting. State law says Getz can make the request without cause, but village council has to approve it. Council voted 4-0 against the dismissal. Councilwoman Melissa Cole was absent.
Getz didn’t say why he wants to replace Coppler. However, he did say that it didn’t have anything to do with a routine state audit that started Monday.
Coppler has been serving in her role for 18 months. At one point the position was elected, but council changed it to a mayoral appointment three years ago.
