After the recent resignations of two long-time board members, new nominations were appointed to the Housing Authority by city leaders Monday.
The Board of Mayor and Aldermen recently accepted the resignations of Jerry Fraiser and Bob Bailey from the Housing Authority.
During the open board meeting, Richard Griffin and Mamie Williams were appointed as the replacements for the housing board.
Griffin was appointed with no opposition from the city council. There was concern of Griffin’s appointment since he also serves on the city’s planning and zoning board.
“There are no restrictions,” said Sarah O’Reilly-Evans, board attorney. “He can continue to serve his time out (on the planning and zoning board) as well.
Williams was appointed with Mayor Diane Delaware casting a vote in opposition. Alderman Dr. Varner abstained because he said he “didn’t know who Williams was.”
Williams also serves on the city’s election commission.
The city board also accepted the resume of Craig Wooten, director of Ricks Memorial Library, to serve on the Historical Preservation Commission. The board will take action during its next board meeting on Sept. 28.
