At a special session of the City Council last night a revision of the sewer board was passed.
The new board consists of three members:
1. the Mayor or his designee
2. two members appointed by the City Council, one of whom must be the City Engineer or a registered professional engineer
That means for the time being, the board consists of the Mayor's designee, Ron Carroll and Bill Utz who is a current member of the Sewer Board.
Compensation is yet to be set, but will be set by the Council. Furthermore, expenses are limited to $1,200.00 annually per member.
The board may function with the members now named, as two members constitute a quorum.
This ordinance matches the state statute governing the establishment of local utility boards for second class cities except for the allowance of a "designee" to serve in place of the Mayor.
A search can now commence for the third member of the board.
