Commission carries on working for the development of tourism appointment

Published on : Wednesday, October 25, 2017

imagesRecently, the Lauderdale County Commission has finally permitted reappointing a Florence man in the Florence-Lauderdale Tourism Board and also to carry on with the interview process to fill a vacant position on the board.

 

In Monday’s meeting, the commission approved the reappointment of Robert Jones to the tourism board.

 

County Administrator explains that Jones is a joint appointment candidate, shared by the commission and the Florence.

 

Jones will serve the office from October 30th, 2017 until Oct. 30, 2021.

 

The County Commission and the City Council each will have two appointments to the five-member board and one joint appointment.

 

Bryant explained that the commission is still in the process to fill up the vacant position in its county on the board. Commissioners started with the interview process earlier this month. However, due to scheduling conflicts they succeeded only to interview two of the five they were interested to talk with. The expectation is to fix the other interviews before the Nov. 6 work session.

 

Whoever is selected for the post will serve until Oct. 30, 2019.

 

Commission Chairman Danny Pettus explained that the commission didn’t receive many applications as he expected. However, those who applied were qualified individuals. “We believe we can get someone from that pool,” he said.

 

“We want to make sure we get the right person, a person who can work well with the other board members,” Pettus said. “It’s our job to put the best person in the position, and that’s what we’re trying to do. Hopefully, we can have the interviews completed soon and get the appointment made.”
