Missouri Mayor says that city tourism commission needs to be revamped

Missouri MayorMissouri Mayor Jeff Palmore wants the city tourism commission renewed and the ordinance that established the commission revised to create what he described as a legal commission.

 

Palmore said he has two serious problems with the makeup of the commission and he’s concerned that an illegally seated commission is expending city funds. He said that members of the current board have exceeded term limits and one individual who has served for the past three years lives outside the city limits, which is prohibited by state statute.

 

His comments have, however, invited sharp retort. “This falls at your feet,” Alderman Mike Pigg told Palmore. “You make up the committees. You should put members on the committees.” Pigg said following the most recent election, Palmore told aldermen that he was too busy and the city had too many things going on to revamp the aldermanic committees. “You asked us to stay on the committees we were on and I said, ‘We’ll do that if you will appoint people to fill these other committees,’ ” Pigg said. “And you said you would make the appointments.”

 

Alderman Nick Chlebowski said when the term of any appointed or elected official expires, the individual retains the seat until a replacement is qualified and seated, according to the Missouri Constitution. Palmore said that does not apply to people who are term limited out.

 
Palmore said he will not appoint anyone until the ordinance is corrected to align with the state statute. He asked aldermen to bring names of candidates for the position to him.
