Consider a memorandum/resolution declaring vacancies on various citizen boards and commissions and appointing members to fill the unexpired terms.

Summary

DATE: April 5, 2022

TO: Kent Cagle, City Manager

FROM: Traci Briggs, City Attorney

SUBJECT: Appointing Citizen Members to Various Boards & Commissions

BACKGROUND AND FINDINGS:

The Mayor and City Council make annual appointments to the various boards, commissions, and committees each year and throughout the year as vacancies occur.

In addition, Section 3-20(o) of the City Council's Governing Standards and Expectations states that citizen committees are most effective when members are able to communicate freely and that no city councilmember will be appointed as a member of a citizen committee. On March 29, 2022, Mr. Riakos Adams who serves on several boards and commissions was appointed to serve the remaining City Council District 2 term.

Within the past month, a board/commission member has resigned from their seat creating a vacancy on the Senior Citizen Advisory Board. The member who has resigned is identified in the chart below in the status column as "Resigned."

In order to declare vacancies and make appointments to fill the unexpired terms of the vacancies, City Council action is required.
