City Council to accept resignation of Luis Enrique Flores to the Livingston Planning Commission and provide staff direction to fill two vacancies.

BACKGROUND:

The resignation of Luis Enrique Flores was submitted on January 29, 2015. In addition, a vacancy exists with the expiration on December 31, 2014 of the term of Mario Mendoza.

Staff recommends that Council initiate the appointment process to fill these vacancies. Per Council direction, staff advertised one vacancy on the City website, Channel 2, City Hall Bulletin Board, and the newspaper.

The first round of advertising resulted in two applications being received, from Mario Mendoza and Adanan Bath.
