Meeting Date: 04/18/2017  
From: Stacy Saltzburg, Deputy City Clerk

Consideration of Appointments:  Library Board.
Make one appointment to a term expiring November 2019.
Executive Summary:
The Flagstaff City-Coconino County Public Library Board consists of two County residents, four City residents, and one each non-voting member, or designee, of the City Council and the Board of Supervisors. The Library Board serves as a citizen's advisory board to the Library Director. There are currently two City resident vacancies and the Library Board is having difficulty establishing a quorum for meetings. It is important to fill vacancies on boards and commissions quickly so as to allow them to continue meeting on a regular basis.

There is one application on file for consideration by the Council as follows:

Evin Dunn (new applicant)

In an effort to reduce exposure to personal information the applicant roster and application will be submitted to the City Council separately.

Financial Impact:
These are voluntary positions and there is no budgetary impact to the City of Flagstaff.
Policy Impact:
Not applicable.
Connection to Council Goal, Regional Plan and/or TeamFlagstaff Strategic Plan:
There is no Council goal that specifically addresses appointments to Boards and Commissions; however, boards and commissions do provide input and recommendations based on City Council goals that may pertain to the board or commission work plan.
Has There Been Previous Council Decision on This:
Options and Alternatives:
1) Appoint one Board Member: By appointing a member at this time, the Library Board will be at near full membership, allowing the group to meet and provide recommendations to the City Council.

2) Postpone the action to allow for further discussion or expand the list of candidates.
Community Benefits and Considerations:
The City's boards, commissions, and committees were created to foster public participation and input and to encourage Flagstaff citizens to take an active role in city government.
Community Involvement:
INFORM: The vacancies are posted on the City's website and individual recruitment and mention of the opening by Commission members and City staff has occurred, informing others of this vacancy through word of mouth.
