Clarification of two agenda items

DAYTON, Febuary 9, 2017 - Last Monday night the Dayton City Council met in regular session. The first agenda item of this meeting dealt with the resignation of Mayor Pro-Tem Dwight Pruitt. This item was withdrawn from the agenda because no actual letter of resignation had been received. However, it is the City Administration's understanding that Mr. Pruitt does intend to resign and will be tendering his resignation at a future time. When the City receives and accepts this letter of resignation, the City Council will have twenty days to name someone to fill Mr. Pruitt's unexpired term in office, same being approximately 15 months.

A second agenda item that seems be in need of clarification is the matter of the naming of Alan Conner as the Tax Assessor for the City. This appointment enables Mr. Conner to assist the City Finance Department in its annual need to establish tax rates at an early point each year so that budgets can be formulated as accurately as possible. Mr. Conner has a great deal of experience in the area of tax assessment and is already working for the City in the capacity of Municipal Court Judge. He will receive no additional compensation for his assistance in the area of tax assessment, truth in taxation information and work in the area of the annual budget. The City will send Mr. Conner to required training each year to maintain a certification as a tax assessor and this cost is estimated to be $ 1,200. The City of Dayton has enjoyed a long and valued relationship with the Liberty County CAD and the Liberty County Tax Assessor / Collector's Office and envisions that these relationships will continue unchanged.
