The City of Bellemeade is searching for some residents to step up and take a role in our municipal government. First and foremost we need a new Commissioner. After the death of our Mayor, John Miller, a current commissioner was appointed to fill the vacancy. This left the commission one member short. We have 30 days from January 27th 2020 to fill the vacancy for the remainder of 2020. The Commission would like to either fill the vacancy or have candidates in place for consideration at our next Commission meeting on February 10th 2020. If we do not choose a new Commissioner at this meeting we would have two more weeks to schedule a special meeting to fill the spot. If you are interested in being a Commissioner for the city, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-417-0831) and ask about it. I am happy to give you all of the information and explain the role and what it involves. There is no compensation except being involved in the city government but the time commitment is very reasonable. Second, we need two residents to fill open spots on the ethics committee. The ethics committee is a standing committee for the city that collects paperwork and oversees ethics complaints against city officials. We have a chairperson for the committee, we simply need two other residents to fill out the committee. This post typically only requires a few hours of involvement per year, but you would need to be available if an ethics violation or complaint did arise. Again, contact me if you have questions or would be interested in serving and I can outline the role more clearly.
