The cities of Gardner and Edgerton are seeking a few good people.
Edgerton is seeking two volunteers to serve on its planning commission. The commission is tasked with reviewing development projects and making recommendations to the city council.
Applicants must be Edgerton residents or live within three miles of Edgerton city limits. Applicants must also be available for regularly-scheduled meetings. The commission typically meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. Interested parties should send a statement of qualifications to Edgerton City Hall.
The city of Gardner is seeking applicants to serve on the city council.
The council is the lawmaking arm of city government tasked with approving a budget, establishing policies for land use and oversight of city departments and staff.
The selected applicant will serve the remainder of Larry Fotovich’s council term, which will expire in April 2015.
Mayor Chris Morrow announced during the Oct. 6 city council meeting that he had to date received three applications to fill the position. He will accept additional applicants through Oct. 20.
Members of the council will conduct public interviews of the applicants at a future council meeting.
“Everyone is going to get an opportunity to come forward and answer some questions,” Morrow explained the process. “(Applicants) will have a few minutes to open, and then everyone will have an opportunity to answer the same questions.”
Morrow said after a question-and-answer period, the council may then decide to appoint one of the applicants, to have finalists return for another interview session or decide to seek additional applicants.
The Gardner City Council typically meets at 7 p.m. on the first and third Mondays.
