18. C. Elliott- Req. City Council adopt a policy to require the City Manager to submit resumes of applicants for all Boards and Commissions that require City Council confirmation.
Finally City Councilor Rodney Elliot has brought forward a motion to settle the Resume Issue, hopefully once and for all.
I don’t think resume of unsuccessful candidates should be made public but I give Councilor Elliot credit for finally bringing forth a motion that will allow all Councilors to either publicly vote Yay or Nay and we can move on from this matter regardless of what the final vote is.
It is time for all 9 Councilors to either say Yes we want to see all Resume’s or NO we do not need to.
I hope the Councilor gets more specific and states WHEN the council should receive these resume, BEFORE or After the Manager submits a name? The final policy may clear up that question but at least we could see an ending to this issue so the Council can move on to far more important issues.
Thank You to City Clerk Michael Geary who emailed me a copy of the Agenda this morning and informed me he was having issues getting it posted to the website but says it should be up now.
I attached the complete Agenda as a PDF.
