Former Corydon Marshal G. Todd Stinson was officially rehired Monday night at a meeting of the Corydon Town Council.
Stinson, 43, held the position of marshal with the Corydon Police Dept. once before, after being hired on in May 2002. He left the department five years later. Last week, Stinson resigned from his position as an investigator with the Harrison County Prosecutor's Office.
"I want to stay on and retire here," Stinson told the town board before the unanimous vote.
The police department had an opening when Capt. James Sadler resigned earlier this month after 27 years on the department.
In another matter, the town council agreed to purchase a Chevrolet pick-up truck from John Jones Automotive Group at a cost of about $20,887.72. The cost included $2,000 trade-in value on an old Chevrolet Colorado.
Council member Roger McGraw said the last time the town tried to sell a truck publicly that the town had to lower the price to nearly $2,000 before it would sell.
Fellow councilman John D. Kintner said the $2,000 trade-in value was a good deal due to the condition of the truck.
Also during the meeting, council president Fred Cammack was re-appointed to the Harrison County Regional Sewer District Board.
