The Clear Lake Sanitary District Board of Trustees is expected to appoint a temporary trustee at its meeting Feb. 18 to replace Kelly McLaughlin.
According to Superintendent Kevin Moler, McLaughlin has accepted the position of Maintenance Supervisor at the Sanitary District plant, making it necessary for him to resign his position as a trustee.
McLaughlin, who served as facilities and transportation director for the Clear Lake School District for 12 years, was chosen from four applicants interviewing for the post.
The board may elect to appoint someone to fill McLaughlin’s seat until the November 2014 elections. The person elected will then serve the remaining two years of the six-year term (Jan. 1, 2015 - Dec. 31, 2016).
According to Moler, the board has met two of the three possible appointments and will meet the third person at the Feb. 18 board meeting. Following that interview, the Board may vote to fill the position.
