Starting next spring, the city of Vandalia's treasurer will be appointed, not elected.
The Vandalia City Council voted unanimously to switch the treasurer's job to an appointed position.
The council did so over the strong objection of Marjorie Blythe, who is in her fourth term as city treasurer.
The council also voted to reduce the treasurer's salary at $4,000. The salary for the part-time position is now $14,000.
