I applied for a position on Crosslake’s P & Z Commission minutes after reading about vacancies in the paper.
At the last council, meeting two appointments were made to the P & Z Commission on the mayor’s recommendation. The mayor then stated that an application had been received from me, but he had received the applications from the two people he was recommending before mine.
I admit that I did not know that recommendations to P & Z were based on a first-come, first-nominated basis. I would have thought a better process would have been some discussion of qualifications as more appropriate.
