By Amy Eddings
A set-back for the Ada Police, storm sewer projects, and surprising bids for repainting the water tower were topics at Tuesday’s village council meeting in Ada.

In his report to councilors and mayor, Chief Michael Harnishfeger announced that a recent hire to the police department is leaving.

"Ryan Schroeder, our full time officer that we hired in July or August. he’s midway in our probation, and he’s leaving us,” said Chief Harnishfeger with a grimace.  “He’s going to go back to selling cars.”

He said he hated the process of finding and training a new officer.
