Subject:                      Resolution appointing one Trustee to the Board of Trustees of the City of Leesburg Municipal Firemen’s Retirement Plan

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of an appointment to the Board of Trustees of the City of Leesburg Municipal Firemen’s Retirement Plan for a one year term, January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012.

 

Analysis:

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 one year term for the period, January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2012, in the seat on the Board of Trustees currently held by Tim Sullivan.  After 2012, this seat will be a two year term beginning January 1st every odd numbered year.

 

Board member Tim Sullivan has indicated he is interested in continuing to serve as a Trustee for an additional one year term or until such time a suitable replacement can be found.  . 

 

(Note: Board member Tim Sullivan, whose term will expire, has indicated that he will serve until a suitable replacement can be found.  Tim has indicated that he will have to step down as he plans on running for public office. Because no other qualified individuals have come forward for consideration at this time, the City Commission should consider re-appointing Mr. Sullivan until such time a suitable replacement is found or he needs to tender resignation.)

 

Staff will continue to actively advertize the position.

 

Options:

1.   Approve the Resolution appointing Tim Sullivan for a one year term, January, 1 2012 – December 31, 2012, 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.
