— Commissioner Tom Mathers was absent from Tuesday’s meeting.

Since taking over as Moffat County Tourism Association Director in June 2011, Melody Villard said the board has had problems conducting business due to attendance.

“There have been instances where the regular meetings could not be held because we did not have a quorum,” Villard said. “We have also had problems working through our agendas efficiently because of conflicts of interest.”

To streamline monthly MCTA Board meetings, Villard asked the Moffat County Commission on Tuesday to advertise for and appoint a local resident to serve as an alternate member.

The MCTA Board has discussed the alternate’s role, Villard said. It’s the board’s expectation an alternate board member would serve a full three-year term, attend all meetings, and engage in discussions, but only vote on action items when necessary to complete a quorum.

“The board also feels that having an alternate would give a person good working knowledge of the MCTA Board and its operation for when a permanent position opens in the future,” Villard said.

The alternate board member’s term will begin on the date of the appointment, Villard said, and expire in January 2015.

Before approving the request, commissioner Tom Gray asked Villard what industry the MCTA Board feels is not currently represented.

“The current board makeup is three members from the lodging industry, one from the restaurant industry, one from retail, one outfitter and one from the news industry,” Villard said. “The industries that come to mind when thinking about how to round out this board are food service, recreation or the convenience markets.”

Advertising for the alternate MCTA board position will begin Saturday.

For more information about MCTA and the alternate board seat, call Villard at 824-2335 or 629-2035.

To apply, send a letter of interest to Erin Miller, administrative assistant to the county commissioners, at emiller@moffatcounty.net or 221 W. Victory Way, Suite 130, Craig, CO 81625.

The deadline is Friday, April 13, Miller said, and applicants must be tied to the tourism industry in “some fashion.”
