Defiance to keep two top officials

Two of Defiance’s top city offi­cials will stay on with the approval of the next mayor. On Tues­day, coun­cil dis­cussed con­tract renewals for admin­is­tra­tor Jeff Leonard, and law direc­tor David Williams. Cur­rent Mayor Bob Arm­strong told the coun­cil that he and incom­ing Mayor Mike McCann, who won a four-year term last month, both agreed to offer new one-year con­tracts to Leonard and Williams. Coun­cil did not object. The actual terms of the con­tracts will be nego­ti­ated in Jan­u­ary after McCann takes over as mayor.
