Discussion on Advisory Board Appointments - 1/28/14 City Commission Meeting

This item was pulled from the Consent Agenda at the request of Commissioner McVoy. There was no back-up provided for the three people who were to be "ratified" by the City Commission. Commissioner McVoy has an obvious observation: He was not in a position to make an intelligent decision.

The whole situation would have solved itself had back-up been provided with the time, which included the application to serve on a volunteer board, resume and bio information. If you listen to the video, you will hear about the difference between being "appointed" and "ratified." I, personally, am for the more formal interview process and that could be done every three months, based upon the applications received during the previous three months.
