Council set to choose Fiebig’s replacement, consider law director

With the January 27, 2020 resignation of David Fiebig, the Council At-Large III seat on the Willoughby Hills City Council remained vacant.  Under the City Charter, the remaining Council Members must choose his replacement within 30 days.  According to an agenda published late last week, Council will interview applicants and make its selection by vote. The 10 candidates are:

Dan Phillip
Dan Zegarac
Dan Knecht
Jenna Bing
Mark Gibson
Peter Pike
Dale Fellows
Judy Shrefler
Julie Belich
Sarah Dykstra

Also to be considered on Tuesday, is an ordinance to hire four attorneys. Council is considering Mayor Gardner’s nomination of one, Michael C. Lucas, to serve as Law Director and three additional lawyers, Stephanie E. Landgraf, Daniel F. Richards and Thomas G. Lobe, to serve as Assistant Law Directors.  Thomas G. Lobe previously served two stints as Willoughby Hills Law Director before he was fired by former Mayor Ken Lorenz in 2007, rehired by Mayor Robert Weger in 2008, and then resigned in 2017.

The Special Council Meeting begins at 6:00 p.m. tonight, February 18, 2020 and will be held in Willoughby Hills Council Chambers.  You can find links to Council Meeting agendas, minutes and legislation here.
