Staff recommends approval of an appointment to the Board of Trustees of the City of Leesburg Municipal Firemen’s Retirement Plan for a two year term.
James B. Loper, General Counsel to the Board of Trustees of the City of Leesburg Municipal Firemen’s Retirement Plan, has forwarded the attached request from Walter Roenbeck, Chairman of the Firemen’s Pension Board, requesting the City Commission to take action on the following item:
Appoint a legal resident of the City of Leesburg to serve for an initial two year term in the seat on the Board of Trustees currently held by John Kriete.
Board member John Kriete has indicated he is interested in continuing to serve as a Trustee for an additional two year term.
(Note: Board member Tim Sullivan, whose term will expire concurrently with Mr. Kriete’s, has indicated that he is not interested in continuing to serve as a Trustee. Because no other qualified individuals have come forward for consideration at this time, the City Commission will need to fill Mr. Sullivan’s seat when opportunity permits in the future.)
1. Approve the Resolution appointing John Kriete for a two year term as a Trustee to the Board of Trustees of the City of Leesburg Municipal Firemen’s Retirement Plan; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
No fiscal impacts are associated with the appointment of the Trustee to the Pension Board.
