Poth council talks personnel, election, chickens
POTH -- The city soon will have two new full-time employees, following the Poth City Council’s March 17 meeting.
Mayor Pro Tem Jason Smolka said following the meeting that the council voted to fill a vacancy in the public works department, with the condition that Public Works Supervisor Kenneth “Buck” Griffin would provide the name of the candidate to Mayor Paul Martinez for his approval.
The council also voted to promote Patrolman Scott Walker of the Poth Police Department to full-time status, effective the date of the meeting. Police Chief Lowell Hull said Walker began working late last year as a non-paid reserve officer, but had worked as a part-time officer since January.
In other business, the council voted to cancel the May 10 special election for an unexpired council term, since Keith Rodgers was the only candidate to file for the post. The regular election, in which voters will select a mayor and two councilmen, will proceed as scheduled. Linda Sanchez was selected to serve as the election judge.
No action was taken, but recommended changes to the city’s rules regarding the keeping of laying hens were discussed. Smolka said the council is set to vote on the matter at its April meeting.
