City searching for new water board representative

The Clarendon City Council is looking for a new person to represent its interests on the Greenbelt Water Authority Board following last week’s council meeting November 9.

Gary Campbell who has held Clarendon’s seat on that board for six years told the board he did not wish to be reappointed as his term expires.

“I’ve enjoyed it. I’ve had a good time, but right now I’m overloaded,” Campbell said. “I think it’s time for me to step down.”

Campbell said he would continue to be available if the city ever needed him with questions about water treatment.

City Administrator David Dockery praised Campbell’s contributions to the city and noted his work on the Greenbelt Board in development of water wells and the acquisition of groundwater rights.

Aldermen discussed the need to find someone quickly to fill Campbell’s seat but took no action on the topic. The city council will not meet on its next regular date, November 23, due to the Thanksgiving holiday. The Greenbelt position will be considered at the following regular meeting on December 14.

In other city business, the council voted to cast all 450 of the city’s votes on the appraisal board in favor of the candidacy of Alderman Jacob Fangman.

Aldermen also approved reappointing three members of the Clarendon Economic Development Corporation Board. Those members are Terri Floyd, Doug Kidd, and Brandon Frausto.

In his administrator’s report, Dockery said the city is looking at possible houses for demolition and specifically looking at properties than have been on the delinquent tax list for ten years or longer.
