Wyanet mayoral candidates face off at forum
WYANET — Approximately 55 residents gathered at the Wyanet VFW Hall Tuesday night to hear from the two candidates running for the Wyanet mayoral seat. Incumbent Mayor Bruce Hand and Tom Odell, who is currently a trustee on the village board, fielded questions from moderator the Rev. Katie Voigt of the United Methodist Church of Wyanet. The event was sponsored by the Wyanet Community Club.
Wyanet’s finances, community involvement, conflict resolution, the assets of living in the village, and future improvements in the village were some of the main topics covered in the forum.
When asked to describe the financial position of the village, Hand assured the audience Wyanet is ahead of the game compared to other small towns. He commended prior boards in making wise decisions that helped the village, but to keep moving forward, he said the board is going to have to invest in some equipment to keep the water/sewer systems working. Hand stressed the importance of getting grants to help fund future projects.
