Council meets Monday to consider appointments
Merced City Council to consider districting committee appointments
The Merced City Council will consider appointments for the Districting Advisory Committee and also one for the Planning Commission at its Monday meeting.
The Council will meet at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers on the second floor of the Merced Civic Center, 678 W. 18th St.
In November 2014 voters approved Measure T creating a district election process for the City Council. An Independent Districting Advisory Committee will draw up the boundaries for those districts and submit them to the City Council for approval.
The League of Women Voters has reviewed 39 applications from people interested in being on the Committee. They have submitted a list of seven candidates to the Council for consideration. If Council doesn't approve that list of candidates, the League has an alternate list of candidates for consideration.
The Council will interview Misty L. Compton and Kirpal Singh Grewal for one seat on the Planning Commission during a 6 p.m. study session. The seat opened up when Nathan Mackin moved out of the City.
A closed session will follow the study session for the performance evaluation of the city manager.
