Civil Service exams
The city’s Civil Service Commission will conduct written competitive exams May 22 for the positions of full/part-time police officer and police dispatcher.
For police, the exam will be at 9 a.m., and for the dispatcher, at noon, both at 220 W. Liberty St.
Applications may be obtained at the police department, 232 School St. and returned with a $10 check made out to the city of Hubbard. Applications are due May 12.
The tests are given periodically so that a list of candidates is available when a position needs to be filled, city officials said.
The township will have its annual spring cleanup from 9 a.m. to noon May 15 or until the large trash bins are full. Officials will accept tires, water heaters, stoves, washers, dryers, lead-acid batteries, refrigerators, etc. No mud- or dirt-filled tires or tractor or truck tires will be accepted. All Freon must be removed before bringing the item. No paints, oils or liquid chemicals will be accepted. The trash bins will be placed at Hartford Center to better accommodate traffic. The cleanup is for Hartford residents only.
Vehicle hits house
A vehicle trying to elude police hit a house at 54 Crumlin, but there was no damage to the house or occupants in the incident that occurred at 4:37 a.m. Saturday. Police on patrol saw someone “scurry” in the yards in the vicinity of Highland and Morris then get into a vehicle. Police followed the vehicle. When the vehicle turned west on Crumlin, it turned into a driveway and hit the house. The driver exited the vehicle, police gave chase, but the suspect eluded capture. Police recognized the driver. The contents of the vehicle were inventoried, and a charred glass tube with suspected cocaine and an empty pill bottle were found.
Police Chief Rich Tisone has asked the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation to investigate an accidental shooting that occurred Sunday afternoon on Mansell Drive involving the 16-year-old son of officer Chad McGarry.
The teen was grazed, receiving a minor flesh wound, when a gun he was handling accidentally discharged. He was treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown.
Tisone said the weapon was not McGarry’s service revolver but another owned by him.
