KINGMAN - Appointments and reappointments to five of local government boards and commissions will take place tonight when the City Council holds its final regular meeting of 2013.
The Clean City Commission has three members whose terms expire on New Year's Eve who were recommended for reappointment. One new member, Raymond Tapia, was unanimously recommended to fill one of two vacant seats on the commission.
There are no candidates to fill the second empty seat. Applications are available at City Hall, 310 N. Fourth St, or online at www.cityofkingman.gov.
Three existing members of the Board of Adjustment have been unanimously recommended to serve another three-year-term beginning Jan. 1
Three existing members of the Tourism Development Commission have been asked to serve a second three-year term beginning Jan. 1.
Two of three existing members of the Economic Development and Marketing Commission were unanimously recommended for reappointment to another three-year term, leaving one vacancy unfilled. The commission recommends the City Council appoint either Floredeliza Alcantara-Reyes or Mike Cobb to the seat.
Matt Ladendecker is term limited out of the Planning and Zoning Commission and could only be reappointed through a supermajority recommendation from his peers on the commission. However, Ladendecker has reportedly told staff he does not want to serve another term.
Commissioner Mike Blair's term also expires on Dec. 31 and he is eligible for a reappointment. However, no mention is made whether Blair seeks another term or if he has a recommendation from his peers.
Five other candidates applied for the two openings.
Finally, Mayor Janet Watson and City Council members will divvy up liaison postings for each of the city's 20 boards or commissions.
In another item of note, the City Council could go into closed session in order to provide City Attorney Carl Cooper with his annual evaluation. Tonight's meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall.
