BATAVIA, OH (FOX19) - Batavia Village council voted Monday night to remove its administrator and they didn't give a reason.

Rebecca Prem Groppe had the part-time job since June. Mayor John Thebout says he is devastated and discouraged by the move.

He says he liked Groppe's ideas and leadership. The Mayor says there is no interim administrator and the next council meeting is in March.
