Earlier this week, the Kalkaska Village Council unanimously approved the appointment of local businessman and village resident Timothy Ellis (center) to fill a spot vacated on the board by former trustee Dan North, who resigned in February. 

KALKASKA – The Kalkaska Village Council is back up to full strength.

Council members voted unanimously, 4-0, Monday to appoint village resident Timothy Ellis to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Dan North in late February. Trustees Diana Needham and Denise Kelly were absent.

North announced his resignation on Feb. 23, informing village officials that he had taken on an additional job and no longer had the time to fulfill his duties as a trustee. North was also chairman of the council’s Finance Committee.

There was no discussion prior to the council’s approving Ellis’ appointment, other than the recommendation by trustee Penny Dupuie, a member of the Nomination Committee.
