Council President Buckholtz asked, are there any other items?

Mrs. Mills asked, has a date been set for interviewing the new Council member yet?

Mrs. Betsa replied, I have received four resumes thus far.  Resumes will be accepted until Friday, June 6th.  Interviews will be scheduled for Monday, June 9th, prior to the sewer meeting scheduled for 7:00 p.m.  If additional resumes are submitted, interviews will also have to be scheduled for Tuesday, June 10th.  I will coordinate schedules with Council.

Council President Buckholtz asked, we are closing the application submission on the 6th?

Mrs. Betsa replied, yes.

Council President Buckholtz asked, will we see those resumes in our packet on Friday?

Mrs. Betsa replied, yes. 

Council President Buckholtz asked for preference of morning or evening for Council.  Council would prefer to hold the interviews in the early evening.  Council President Buckholtz suggested the interviews start around 5:30 on Monday so as to conclude by the sewer meeting which is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.  Depending on the number of applications received, we will reassess this on Friday. 

Mr. Marrie asked, how does Council vote?

Mr. Diemert replied, it will be a public vote.  Your second meeting in June may be the deciding factor.  If you can’t decide by then, you still have time before your time period expires and then the Mayor makes the appointment.

Council President Buckholtz asked, do you go through each candidate publicly and everyone votes yes and no?

Mrs. Mills replied, no.  We recommend a candidate.

Mr. Marrie asked, so we recommend a candidate and vote on that one?

Mr. Diemert stated, you could go into Executive Session to discuss it.  You would then go back into public meeting and make a motion on the floor and vote on it. The first person to get the majority vote.

Council President Buckholtz asked, do we hold special meetings for the interviews?

Mr. Diemert replied, yes.  There should be a special meeting for the interview and then Executive Session and then your ultimate decision at a regular or special meeting.

Dr. Parker suggested Council set aside a certain amount of time for each candidate and then Council can discuss after all the interviews. 

Council will hold a Special Meeting on Monday, June 9th.  Mrs. Betsa will coordinate the time with Council. Council will then adjourn for Executive Session to conduct interviews.   A 15-minute time slot will be scheduled for each candidate.  Following the interviews, Council will discuss the selection.  They will then reconvene to adjourn.  If a decision has been made, letters will be sent to the candidates thanking them for applying and advising that a decision has been made.  At the regular meeting of Council, Council will vote.


Mrs. Mills, seconded by Mr. Marrie, made a motion to adjourn.

The meeting adjourned at 8:45 p.m. The next Council meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 16, 2014 at 8:00 p.m.
