For a second time a proposed slate of directors was rejected by the board of aldermen in Parkville.
In August the board received a slate of nominations for directors to the Parkville Old Towne Market Community Improvement District (CID) and the list was rejected by the board on September 6, 2016. During that meeting, the board said they had questions about the number of open spots on the CID board and had concerns with some of the nominated slate of directors.
The initial slate listed three people to be appointed, but the new slate now has four names including Mark Bentley, Tom Hutsler, Dave Williams and Art Brown.
Melissa McChesney, city clerk, told the board that the city still had a discrepancy with the number of open seats and that the appointment dates were off from the CID, so there are actually five open positions.
Nan Johnston, mayor, said that one of the current directors listed by the CID as a business owner had closed his business and would not be eligible as a director anymore. For more on story.
