Minooka Village Clerk Orsola Evola was among those sworn in at Tuesday’s meeting of the Minooka Village Board of Trustees.
The position she will occupy had been vacant since early September, at which point Kristi Lamontagna stepped down.
Evola had this to say of her appointment as village clerk.
As previously reported, Evola has experience working for an adult men’s detention facility. She said that working in law enforcement has provided her with many takeaways.
Village President Patrick Brennan said he thinks Evola will do a great job for the village.
Evola’s first day at village hall was Monday, Oct. 21.
She grew up in Marseilles and is a current resident of Shorewood.
Also at the meeting, the village board recognized the promotion of a police officer to sergeant.
Taking part in a swearing-in ceremony with a ceremonial pinning was Rob Stukel.
Stukel, a graduate of Minooka Community High School and an 8-year veteran of the Minooka Police Department, is currently assigned to the investigations section where he’s been for two years.
He has experience as a patrol officer, field training officer, evidence technician, and rapid deployment and Alert Lockdown Inform Counter Evacuate instructors.
Stukel will lead the police department’s night patrol shift beginning Nov. 11.
