Staff recommends appointing George W. “Bill” Farner, Jr. to the Lake Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Citizens Advisory Committee.
The Commission appointed Howard Wiener to the Citizens’ Advisory Committee at its inception. His current term expires at the end of December, 2008. Mr. Wiener advised he is willing to serve again, but pointed out that some other cities have selected representatives who are not just "citizens," but are also industry professionals (engineers, architects, planners, etc.). Mr. Wiener suggested Leesburg may be better served if the City’s representative is someone from the industry.
At the November 24, 2008, City Commission meeting City Manager Evans requested input from the Commission. Commissioner Polk suggested Bill Farner, Hall-Farner and Associates, Inc. Attached is Mr. Farner’s application for the Citizens Advisory Committee.
1. Approve George W. “Bill” Farner, Jr. as the City of Leesburg’s representative to the Citizens Advisory Committee
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
