Board Of Commissioners Looking To Fill A Seat

At the first of the month, the St. Clair County Board of Commissioners will have a vacancy on the board.  According to St. Clair County Administrator Karry Hepting, Councilman Karl Tomion has informed the board of his intent to submit his resignation on June 6th.  Hepting says by statue the board has 30 days from the day the letter is received to appoint someone to step in.  If the board is not able to appoint someone a special election must be held.  The board is soliciting applications from anyone that is interested in filling the seat for the remainder of the term.  Those applications are due at the city clerk’s office by June 12 at 4 p.m.  Eligibility will be checked and then on June 13th applicants will go before the commissioners in a special meeting, to talk briefly about their interest in serving on the board.  An interview session will take place on June 20th and it is their hope and intent  to appoint a replacement on June 20th.
