Seward County commissioners took action on three items at Monday’s regular meeting and did so in a short time.
The primary item was the appointment of Monalicia Arredondo to fill a vacancy on the county’s planning and zoning board.
Arredondo challenged Commission Chair Ada Linenbroker in the recent Republican primary, but Linenbroker easily advanced.
Administrator April Warden said that vacancy has been in place for some time, and recently, an application was received from Arredondo.
Warden said the applicant meets the requirements to serve on the board.
“As far as the makeup of the board, we have to have so many people inside the city limits both in the City of Liberal and the City of Kismet and so many rural,” she said. “The vacancy that we do have, she is eligible to fill that position.”
The commission voted 4-0 with Randy Malin absent to accept Arredondo’s application.
The board next voted to move its first meeting in September to Tuesday, Sept. 2. The commission normally meets on the first and third Mondays of each month, and since the first Monday of September is Labor Day, the meeting needed to be moved.
Lastly, the commission voted unanimously to send C.J. Wettstein as a voting delegate to the annual Kansas Association of Counties Conference Nov. 12-14 in Wichita. The motion the board approved also included choosing Jim Rice as first alternate for the conference.
Following those items, executive sessions, the administrator’s report and commission comments, the board adjourned.
