At its meeting Monday night, the Alexandria City Council accepted the resignation of Jack Seltz from the Runestone Community Center Commission.
In his letter of resignation, Seltz said he was resigning because of increasing demands on his time away from the city.
“I have been honored to serve on this commission for many years and have enjoyed working with very fine and dedicated people who have selflessly given of their time and talents for no compensation other than to serve their community,” Seltz wrote. “I feel that great strides have been made to make this facility one that serves our community very well, especially our children.”
Seltz added that with chairperson Cindy Bigger, other commission members, and excellent staff headed by Manager Vinnie Hennen, “the future of the RCC is in good hands.”
The council accepted the resignation and told staff to write Seltz a letter thanking him for his years of service.
The council appointed Judy Meyer to serve out Seltz’s term, which runs through 2010.
In other action (not already reported in Wednesday’s issue), the council:
•Agreed to allow the Chain of Lakes Triathlon to partially use portions of Highway 27 East and Highway 29 North for the event scheduled on the morning of May 1.
•Approved a second and final ordinance to rezone certain areas along Glenn Road in the Summerville Estates 4th Addition from single-family residential to general business.
•Issued a sign hanger license to Affordable Sign Service.
A discussion of the proposed new police station’s design was taken off the agenda. The architects were unable to travel to the meeting because of the bad weather.
The issue is scheduled to be discussed at the council’s February 22 meeting. A work session with the police station task force will take place before that meeting, starting at 6 p.m.
