Board of Aldermen to Make Commission Appointments Thursday
Terri Violet's new position as a member of the board means two St. Peters' commissions have vacancies.
The last time the Board of Aldermen met at the Justice Center , they had three meetings to get through. On Thursday, it's back to the regular-scheduled program.
The new-look board will meet Thursday night for the first time in October. The board, with new addition Terri Violet going into the meeting knowing she has a spot, will resume its regular pattern of 5 p.m. work session and 7 p.m. meeting.
The agenda for the work session is shorter than normal meetings. Besides the regular items, the board will have just four items up for discussion. They are:
- A draft resolution supporting a city sustainability strategy is first on the agenda. The city is taking part in a green business challenge and needs to put its green support in writing.
- After Prop P, the board will be presented a standard agreement for storm water projects between the city and homeowner associations.
- A recommendation for a contract for the city sanitary sewer maintenance for next year will be presented.
- The board will here proposed code changes.
After the work session the board will move to the regular meeting at 7 p.m .
Terri Violet's ascension to the Board of Aldermen filled a hole at one level, but created two more. Before her appointment last month to the board, Violet was heavily involved in St. Peters. She served as the Chaplin on the Veterans Memorial Commission and was an alternate on the Planning and Zoning Commission—two positions Violet has to give up now that she's on the board.
During Thursday's meeting the Board will appoint Violet's replacements. Mark O'Herron, a Ward 3 resident, has been nominated to be a Planning and Zoning alternate. For the Veteran's Memorial Commission, Michael Sommerville has been nominated to replace Violet and Forrest Routh has been nominated to be a commission alternate.
All appointments will be made during the first part of Thursday's meeting.
The board will also vote on eight items of new business.
