As part of the process, all of those that apply will be interviewed by the Board during the next Board meeting. The Board will make a formal appointment by a majority vote at the Board Business meeting on Wednesday, November 28th at 6:00 PM. Note that if there are more than 3 applicants, the Board may schedule a separate meeting for conducting the interviews before the November 28th meeting, if candidate and Board member scheduling allows.

The appointed applicant will serve until the next election (May 2019).
