Supervisor Gordon plans to defer MCC appointments to Jan 27 meeting


By on Tue, January 6, 2009

Consideration of the appointments to fill the two open positions on the Midcoast Community Council will be taken off the county Board of Supervisors agenda tonight and deferred until the board’s January 27 meeting.

The item is currently listed on the Supervisors’ consent calendar, but the plan is remove the item for consideration at a later date when the public has a sufficient notice to comment.

Supervisors Gordon and Rose Jacobs Gibson have written a memo to the board saying that members of elected boards should be ineligible to serve on municipal advisory councils because those councils’ recommendations should be based on the interests of the communities they serve, independent of other elected bodies that may have an interest in the recommendations.
