continued Renner became a police officer in the village in 1983. In January 2004 he received a letter of commendation for his “alertness and prompt action” that interrupted a robbery in progress. In February 2008 he was awarded the Police Meritorious Service Medal for actions that saved the life of a fellow police officer.

Renner for his capable, dependable and committed service and does earnestly wish him many, many years of fishing, boating, traveling and the good life of retirement.”
