For the second time in as many months the Daleville City Council will appoint a person to fill a vacancy on the Daleville Board of Education.
DBOE member Barbara Davis submitted her letter of resignation from the board citing the fact that she is no longer a Daleville resident.
Daleville Mayor Jayme Stayton asked anyone interested in filling the remainder of Davis’s term which is set to expire May 31, 2022 should submit a letter to the city clerk before the next council meeting June 1.
Stayton said all letters received will be reviewed by the city council and considered at the regular council meeting June 15.
The council most recently appointed Lynne McWilliams to the DBOE at the council meeting May 4. She was appointed to fill the vacancy created by Debra Latremore, who opted not to be reappointed to the board. McWilliams takes a seat on the board at the June DBOE meeting.
In other business, Stayton announced that the Highland Games will be held in Daleville Sept. 18 at Culpepper Park. He asked the council to allow the organizers to use Culpepper Park at no cost. ‘The games have been held in Dothan,” Stayton told the council. “It’s a big event which draws a lot of folks and people all over the Wiregrass look forward to it.
“I’m pretty excited because it will draw a lot of folks to the city of Daleville,” Stayton added.
The next meeting of the Daleville City Council is June 1 at 5:30 p. m. in the Daleville City Council Chambers. The meeting is open to the public.
