Resolution Appointing a Belmont Fire Protection District Representative to the Successor Agency (to the Redevelopment Agency) Oversight Board
Finance Director Fil noted that appointments have been made from the other agencies that will be represented on the Oversight Board. He explained that taking action this evening to appoint the representative from the Fire Protection District would be of great value to the process. He noted that the County of San Mateo will soon complete its audit for the Required Obligation Payment Schedule (ROPS), as it needs to approve this document by the middle of April.
District President Warden stated that he would be making his Mayoral appointments to the Oversight Board within the next few days, and he is likely to appoint Finance Director Fil.
Finance Director Fil expressed concern regarding potential conflict of interest regarding the debt refinancing. He explained that he can personally separate himself from this issue, but cannot separate the entire department.
Director Feierbach offered to be the appointee. She stated that she is interested in the dissolution of the Redevelopment Agency.
Director Lieberman suggested the consideration of Finance Director Fil or City Treasurer Violet.
District President Warden expressed a desire for an elected person to be appointed, as there is a need for someone who is beholden to the Board, and he noted that Director Feierbach has been a strong supporter of the Fire District. He stated that there is a need for different skill sets to be represented on the Oversight Board, including those with financial background and those with good people skills.
Discussion ensued regarding appointments made by other organizations to the Oversight Board.
MEETING EXTENSION: At this time, being 11:30 P.M., on a motion by Director Wozniak, seconded by Director Feierbach, the meeting was extended for 30 minutes by a show of hands (4-1, Lieberman no).
