The Village of Summit is accepting nominations to fill a newly created vacancy on the Village Board of Trustees. Longtime Summit businessman Sevdat "Steve" Memishi announced his resignation from the Village Board of Trustees for personal reasons. Under state law, vacancies are filled by nomination from the Village President and confirmed by a majority vote of the Village Board of Trustees. I am encouraging community input before I submit a nomination to the Board of Trustees for approval. Being a public official is an important responsibility and a way for residents to contribute to the betterment of their community.
Nominations are now being accepted. I hope to submit my recommendation to the board at our second Board meeting in May.
If you are interested in being considered for the position, you should submit a letter detailing your reasons why you would like to serve. Include some of your ideas on how to strengthen the Village of Summit, and make sure to also include a resume. All submissions should be addressed to me and delivered to Village Hall at 7321 West 59th Street during regular business hours.
With the weather improving, I hope everyone has a wonderful Spring.
Joseph W. Strzelczyk
Mayor, Village of Summit
