EHOVE Career Center's incoming treasurer has unexpectedly rescinded his post.
Brad Deleruyelle, set to begin Aug. 1, told the center he is unable take on the job because of personal matters related to health and his family, EHOVE school board president Paul Lockwood confirmed Thursday.
Board members have called on recently retired EHOVE treasurer Larry Hanneman to fill the vacancy Deleruyelle has left for the 2014-15 school year.
On Wednesday, they officially approved both decisions.
"It left us in a bit of a crunch, but the board fully understands that family comes first," Lockwood said. "(Hanneman) is an outstanding treasurer, and his willingness to stay on another year gives us a chance to catch our breath and reassess how we want to proceed next year."
Deleruyelle has been treasurer of Pandora-Gilboa Schools, near Findlay, since 2007.
Hanneman has been EHOVE's treasuer for more than 25 years.
He first announced his retirement Dec. 31.
Shortly after, he agreed to serve as EHOVE's interim treasurer until July 31, so board members could search for and hire a suitable replacement with assistance from North Point Educational Service Center.
The act was considered a retire-rehire, and board members completed all legally necessary public hearings on the matter during fall 2013, Lockwood said.
Board members are still negotiating the terms of Hanneman's new one-year contract, including his pay rate, Lockwood said.
They have not yet determined when they will begin searching for a permanent treasurer, but will likely begin after Jan. 1, he said.
