CAMPBELL Council to interview applicants for vacancy
Council has 30 days to appoint a new member.
CAMPBELL -- Four people have applied so far to replace Steve Sferra, who resigned Dec. 26, citing personal reasons after less than a month as 1st Ward councilman.
Council is taking applications until 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The four are Sferra's wife, Lois; former Councilman Jerry Rudiak; former school board member Mike Tsikouris; and Joseph Mico.
After council accepted Sferra's resignation Wednesday, council President Robert P. Yankle said council will interview the applicants for 10 minutes each during a caucus beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Council has 30 days to appoint a replacement. If it doesn't meet that deadline, Mayor John Dill will make the appointment.
Park rules: Council also passed an ordinance waiving Roosevelt Park pavilion use fees on nonholiday weekdays for churches and other community organizations in the city.
It also set rental fees for the indoor pavilion now under construction at the park at $150 for city residents and $225 for nonresidents. Rental hours were set at 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. for outdoor pavilions and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. for the indoor pavilion.
Council also passed an ordinance authorizing advertising for bids and entering into contract for printing 2,000 copies of the revised 30-page city charter, which is estimated to cost $2,500.
The mayor announced that ice skating will likely begin this weekend at Roosevelt Park.
The next regular council meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 16.
