Ratliff resigns at Eastern

On June 1, the Eastern Local School Board of Education held a special meeting to approve a change in the regular board meeting date, a transfer of a district-owned property, and the resignation of a member of the school board.

Jeff Ratliff, who leads business development throughout the county with First State Bank in Georgetown, abruptly and unexpectedly handed in a letter of resignation to the board of education, some five and a half months after being appointed to the body. Ratliff was appointed on Dec. 16, 2014 to the open seat following the sudden passing of Michael Hoskins.

Ratliff provided no reason for his resignation and Eastern Local Schools superintendent Michele Filon declined to comment.

Regardless, the board unanimously accepted the letter of recommendation, and then spent more than three hours in executive session discussing a possible replacement member. When regular session resumed, no action was taken.

The board approved the transfer of property by way of deed to Charles Moore of Russellville Bible Baptist Church. The property, located at 203 E. Main St. in Russellville was formerly a preschool for the district. On Sept. 14, 2010, the district entered into a lease agreement with Moore for him and his church to use the property through May 31, 2015. The lease contained a purchase option of $6,000 and Moore exercised that option on May 26 by submitting a check for that exact amount.

The board unanimously approved a resolution authorizing the transfer of the property and authorized treasurer Kevin Kendall to “sign any legal documents necessary to complete the transfer.”

The board moved the date for their regularly scheduled board meeting from June 16 to June 9, with a start time of 8 p.m. This was passed with unanimous approval.
