Special Board Meeting

The Board of Aldermen held a Special meeting on Tuesday night April 28, 2015 at 6:00 PM.  Those present included Mayor Greg Richmond, Alderpersons Calvin Wilson, Keith Kohley, Roger Coe and Alice Kezar. Also present was City Clerk Paula Brodie and Officer Adam Miller. 

The Mayor called the meeting to order at 6:00PM.

The Mayor read the letter of resignation from Tax Collector Dawn Davidson. Ald. Kohley moved to accept the letter of Resignation. Ald. Wilson seconded. Ald. Kohley, Kezar, Wilson and Coe voted aye with 0 nays.  It was noted that Dawn Davidson had returned her keys and combination to the safe.

The Board discussed how to go about filling the Tax Collector’s position. The Mayor noted that the position would be for 1 year until the next general election in April of 2016 and then the position would be open for a 1 year term. Ald. Wilson asked if the Board was required to put a notice in the paper. The Mayor stated that they were not required to put the open position in the paper but they probably should as no one else had shown an interest to run for the position. It was decided that the Clerk would put an advertisement in the McDonald County Paper and the Neosho Daily News.  The Board agreed that those interested needed to have filed with the City Hall by 4:00PM on May 19th, 2015. They will then hold a special meeting to go over the applications and interview.

The Board agreed that the Clerk should write up a list of what the job entails.

Ald. Wilson moved to adjourn. Ald. Kohley seconded.  Ald. Kohley, Coe, Kezar and Wilson voted aye with 0 nays.
