Wellsville Village Council held a special meeting Thursday afternoon to pass legislation approving the hiring of a full time police officer. Present at the meeting was Mayor Susan Haugh, Council members Don Brown, John Morrow, Rosie Goss and Tony Cataldo. Also attending was Fiscal Officer Dale Davis and WPD Chief Joe Scarabino. Councilwomen Tonda Ross and Diane Dinch were excused.
With the Mayor's recommendation Council passed a motion to hire Joseph Saraniti as a full-time police officer effective Sunday, March 25. The Stowe, Ohio resident has been working as a part-time Wellsville officer since August, 2011. Saraniti will be replacing Officer Tony Mancuso who resigned earlier this month.
Saraniti is a graduate of the Monroe Falls Police Academy and presently works as a Shipping & Receiving manager for Valley Freight Liner. Chief Scarabino advised that the new officer will be resigning that job and plans to relocate to the Village soon. Scarabino added the new full-timer will continue his orientation and training, partnering with another officer for the time being.
