The Unified Government Commission settled on a procedure tonight for applicants to fill the open 1st District, at large, position.
Two years are remaining on the seat that was held by Mayor Mark Holland. The commission held a lengthy discussion of the procedure.
Starting Friday, May 3, applicants may submit a past history and resume form for the position. Applications are due by May 17. Applicants will include their resume, the public office they are applying for, and reasons they are applying for the position.
Commissioners decided to do an extensive background check on applicants, including a criminal check and other background checks as well.
The commission plans to interview each candidate, with the interviews open to the public. Commissioners, not members of the public, will be allowed to ask questions. After the interviews, each commissioner will select his top two candidates, then the top two will have a runoff.
It is anticipated that information about how to apply for the position, along with more details on the application process, will be announced on Friday, May 3, and will be posted on the UG's website at www.wycokck.org.
