JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown City Council has a light agenda for its monthly voting session.
Just ten resolutions have been pre-filed for the Monday night meeting, including a resolution to accept $35,000 from the Ralph C. Sheldon Foundation. The money will be earmarked for the Strategic Planning and Partnership Commission’s Physician Recruitment Project, which is designed to help attract physicians to the Jamestown area.
The city will also act on resolutions to accept $7000 from the Sheldon Foundation and $5000 from the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation for the city’s summer playground program.
In addition to the pre-filed resolutions, there’s a chance that it could also appoint a new member of the Board of Public Utilities.
A report in the Jamestown Post-Journal says that Mayor Sam Teresi could possibly be naming a nominee to fill the vacant position on the BPU that was previously held by Fred Larson. The BPU position opened up after Larson accepted Teresi’s nomination to become the second full-time city judge. The announcement for his replacement could come as soon as Monday’s meeting. If that’s the case, the city council must also vote to approve the appointment.
Once the new board members is selected and approved by City Council, they will finish the remainder of Larson’s four-year term, which will expire at the end of 2017.
Tonight’s meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
