The Bryant City Coun­cil voted last month to give the City’s Ad­ver­tis­ing and Pro­mo­tion com­mis­sion­ers 30 days no­tice of a ter­mi­na­tion vote. The two al­der­men who serve on the com­mis­sion, Carl­ton Billings­ley and Lorne Glad­den, have re­quested the coun­cil dis­cuss the com­mis­sion­ers’ ter­mi­na­tion again.

The coun­cil’s reg­u­lar meet­ing is set to take place at 6:30 p.m. Tues­day at the Boswell Mu­nic­i­pal Com­plex.

Dur­ing the fi­nal sec­tion of the coun­cil’s meet­ing in April, Al­der­man RJ Hawk made a mo­tion to “is­sue a 30-day ter­mi­na­tion no­tice to all A&P mem­bers ap­pointed by the pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tion.”

The mo­tion was ap­proved with Billings­ley and Glad­den, as well as Al­der­man Rob Roedel, not in at­ten­dance.

The only com­mis­sioner not in­volved in the ter­mi­na­tion vote is Billings­ley, who was ap­pointed by Mayor Allen Scott.

Ac­cord­ing to the city’s or­di­nance, “the city coun­cil of the city of Bryant may re­move any mem­ber of the com­mis­sion by a two thirds vote upon 30 days no­tice of in­tent to take such vote and prior to such vote oc­cur­ring.”

A spe­cial meet­ing for the vote has been set for 6 p.m. June 4 at Boswell Mu­nic­i­pal Com­plex.
