properties (W5824,

being executed and served.

*  *  *  *  *
A citizen expressed concern regarding the current status of the
position of Clerk / Treasurer being “Elected” rather than “Appointed”.
 The previous history regarding this
 situation was briefly reviewed.  This change requires elector
approval by referendum and there are specific statutory steps that
must be followed.  The referendum must appear at either the Spring
Election or the General (Fall) Election.  Further consideration will
be directed to this matter, and the feasibility of creating a Deputy
Clerk/Treasurer position will be explored. 

*  *  *  *  *

Motion to Adjourn.  Motion made by Van and seconded by Magerowski. 
Motion carried (3 to 0) and Meeting was Adjourned at 8:11 P.M.
