At the 10 January 2017 council study session, Bruce Beckman announced that there had been three resignations from the LIFT board and a fourth member that was not seeking another term. Since that meeting another resignation has been delivered making five vacancies. At present, the LIFT board has no executive director, no projects, one urban renewal area and two out of seven members. What happens next? We are not sure.
The law states: 31-25-104(2)(c) Vacancies other than by reason of expiration of terms shall be filled by the mayor for the unexpired term… The mayor shall file with the clerk a certificate of the appointment or reappointment of any commissioner, and such certificate shall be conclusive evidence of the due and proper appointment of such commissioner.
What we do know is that there will not be another LIFT meeting until there are enough members for a quorum!
