Title
Appoint Joe Sutphin to Serve on the Fort Bragg Fire Protection Authority
 
Summary
The City Council has established a regular, annual procedure for soliciting applications and evaluating candidates for appointment to advisory committees, the Noyo Harbor District, and the Fort Bragg Fire Protection Authority.  The current term  the City's jointly appointed member to the Fort Bragg Fire Protection Authority expired on March 31, 2015. The position is jointly appointed by the City Council and the Rural Fire District Board of Directors.
 
A press release was issued on March 4, 2015 calling for all interested persons to apply for the joint appointment to the Fort Bragg Fire Protection Authority by March 20th (Attachment 1).  Only one application was received, and that was from the incumbent, Joe Sutphin (Attachment 2).  As there are no other applicants and Mr. Sutphin is an incumbent, staff recommends that the City Council forego the interview process and appoint Mr. Sutphin to serve another term on the Board of the Fort Bragg Fire Protection Authority.  This action can be taken by the Council on the Consent Calendar and will be recorded as a "minute order."
