Woodland City Council Seeks Applicants to Fill Vacant Seat
On December 14, 2010, the Woodland City Council approved a process to seek applications from interested citizens to fill the vacant City Council seat that resulted from Council member Jeff Monroe's resignation effective December 18.
The Council approved the appointment of an Ad-Hoc Committee composed of Mayor Art Pimentel and Council member Bill Marble and asked them to work with the City Manager to develop a process that would allow the vacant seat to be filled through an appointment process. This process will require the development of an application form and interview questions which will be provided to interested citizens who seek appointment.
The Ad-Hoc Committee will screen the applications and select the most highly qualified for interviews. Committee members Pimentel and Marble will conduct the interviews and select the top 2-3 candidates for consideration by the entire City Council during the February 15, 2011 meeting.
In order to make the process efficient and effective, applicants are asked to provide all of the information in an electronic file. The actual form is a Microsoft Word document; applicants are encouraged to provide the requested information on the form and submit it along with a resume to City Clerk Ana Gonzalez at Ana.Gonzalez@cityofwoodland.org. Interested applicants who do not have access to a computer may come to the City Clerk's Office to receive a hard copy of the application form when City Hall reopens following the holiday furloughs on January 3.
In order to meet the timelines for Council consideration of the most highly qualified applicants, completed applications must be submitted to the City Clerk by January 14, 2011, 5 PM.
Questions regarding the application process may be directed to City Manager Mark Deven at 661-5802 or Mark.Deven@cityofwoodland.org.
