Trevor Guiles appointed to Reed City Council


REED CITY — Trevor Guiles is the newest face on the Reed City Council.

Guiles was appointed at a Nov. 16 meeting, following the resignation letter submitted by former council member Bonnie Danzeisen last month. According to Reed City Manager Ron Howell, Danzeisen stated in her letter that she was unable to devote the proper amount of time and energy to the position.

Guiles serves as a pastor at Liberty Baptist Church and was a member of the Reed City Planning Commission. Now he's looking forward to the next step as part of the city.

"I care a lot for the community and I want to see it advance and thrive," Guiles said about why he was interested in the council spot. "I figured the best way to do that was to get involved. Right now I'm just getting my feet wet, so I need to get a bearing on how things are headed."

Danzeisen was re-elected last year for a two-year term, and Guiles will serve as a council member for the remainder of that term.

In other business, council members discussed the leasing of the old police impound yard, which was put up for bids without response. However, Howell said Reed City Towing expressed an interest after the bidding deadline, so the council will draw up a lease agreement and verify the company has adequate insurance to utilize the space.

A motion on the matter is expected to take place at the Dec. 21 meeting.
