City commissioners reorganize Monday

 


IRONWOOD - A reorganizational meeting of the Ironwood City Commission is scheduled for Monday at 6:30 p.m. in commission chambers at the Memorial Building.

The mayor, mayor pro-tempore and city commissioners will be sworn in as the first item of business.

David Sim is the only new member of the commission. He replaces Monie Schackleford, who was the lowest vote-getter on Tuesday out of the six candidates for the five commission seats.

The commission's first action will be to hear comments at a public hearing on a request for a variance on a rear yard setback at 850 E. Ayer St ., the Hobby Wheel storage units.

Commissioners will appoint the city manager, clerk, treasurer, assessor and city attorney.

Appointments will be made to the Gogebic-Iron Wastewater Authority and Board, Community Action Agency, city planning commission, Pat O'Donnell Civic Center board and parks and recreation committee.

Commissioner Rick Semo will be considered for an appointment as a non-voting member for the Ironwood Theatre board.

In addition to several pay requests on the agenda under new business, commissioners will consider a rental lease agreement with Kevin Schneller and Arlene Schneller for the City Centre.

They will also consider waiving the fee for a Winter Ball for senior citizens to be held in the Memorial Building auditorium.
