LAKE PLACID - The village of Lake Placid will need to decide whether it wants to hire a new traffic enforcement officer following the resignation of Keegan Muldowney.
The village Board of Trustees plans to discuss how it wants to proceed with the vacancy at the police department, Randall said. Trustee Jason Leon noted that the department will have just one traffic control officer heading into the busy holiday season.
"I urge a replacement unless the chief is able to be creative," Leon said.
"It's a position that I certainly would like to replace," Moore told the Enterprise. "I am hoping that the village board is supportive of that."
Muldowney, a Saranac Lake native, sent village police Chief Bill Moore a letter of resignation on Nov. 24. Muldowney told the Enterprise that he will move to New York City to start a job at a private security firm in Manhattan.
"I will continue to use what I've learned working under you and hope to keep in touch in the future," Muldowney said in his resignation letter.
"He's been a good employee; we were happy to have him, and we're sad to see him go," Moore said. "He's moving on to a new chapter of his life, and we wish him well."
Muldowney's last day on the job will be Sunday.
The 22-year-old has also been a member of the Saranac Lake Volunteer Fire Department for nearly three years, and has also volunteered as a coach for the Saranac Lake junior varsity football team.
