Allstadt said Mayor Ellen Tillapaugh Kuch has known for some time that he intended to step down, and she has identified a successor: Steve Zembriski, the local accountant who has helped Village Hall to improve its financial processes.
The six-year trustee has served on the trustees’ Building Committee, and has taken the lead in extensive renovations and improvements to 22 Main St., the historic Village Hall. The work was accomplished for about $1/4 million, he said, using funds from paid parking.
