County councilors wanted to know how they could improve their relationships with boards and commissions and boards and commissions subcommittees Tuesday night in White Rock.
Discussion, however, went from how relations could be improved to the issue of how appointments to subcommittees are made and whether they should be appointed by county council.
Chair of the Fuller Lodge Historic District Advisory Board, Ron Wilkins, was one of the board members that addressed council with his thoughts on the topic. He said that board liaison Nancy Cerutti and Councilor Nona Bowman have been extremely useful and encourage all board liaisons to attend board meetings.
“Liaisons sit there quietly unless we ask them something,” Wilkins said.
He also said that there has been outcry from the public because they feel that the terms of the subcommittees need to be shortened because they are too controlling. Wilkins said that his board has five subcommittees to leverage the work of the board. In addition, he pointed out that it is often hard to get something on the county council agenda with short notice.
In response to Wilkins’ comment about the terms being shortened, Councilor Ken Milder wanted to know how the appointments to subcommittees are made.
