Council Meeting This Tuesday
The Council will meet this Tuesday evening, January 3rd, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Council will immediately go into closed session and return for an open session at 7:30 p.m. The Council meeting will be conducted remotely with no in-person meeting attendance. To attend the virtual meeting, please see the Zoom and other connection information in the left-hand column.
The Council will consider one item:
- To approve the appointment of a Town Administrator on a part-time basis from January 9, 2023 to December 31, 2023, pending favorable results from a criminal, financial, and driver’s history check, and to authorize the Mayor to negotiate and sign a contract with the nominee in substantially the form as the previous Town Administrator but without hotel and per diem expense reimbursements, subject to legal review by the Town Attorney.
I do not expect this to be an easy vote for the town council, and the future of this position rests on the outcome of tomorrow's session. So, if this is of importance to you, please join us.
While we will meet in closed session, any portion of the conversation that does not require being withheld from the public domain will also be discussed in open session. I will also reveal my nominee, the nominee's qualifications, and why I believe this person is most qualified to help us move forward on the many projects facing our town, like stormwater management, the pedestrian bridges, ADA accessibility at town hall, etc.
The Agenda is posted on the Agenda Center of the Town's website (http://www.upmd.org/agendacenter).
Participants who join the video/audio conference will be muted during the meeting except for Mayor, Council, and staff. Participants will have the opportunity to speak during Public Comment - agenda item #4. During that time, all participants will be taken off mute. If you would like to comment, please state your name and Mayor Biermann will call on you to speak. Public comments are generally limited to three minutes.
Public comments or questions may also be made by emailing the Town Clerk TC Hegeman at email@example.com. All electronic comments must be submitted by 12PM on January 3rd, 2023. All public comments will be provided to the Mayor and Council prior to the Council meeting.
