  • Former Ward 1 Councilwoman Rhonda Sue Myers will receive special recognition at Monday night's Rolla City Council meeting, and Mayor Bill Jenks III will nominate someone to fill that vacancy until the April election.
    Myers, elected just last April, served less than six months before she turned in her resignation, effective Sept. 30.
    Jenks read Myers' letter of resignation at the Sept. 16 council meeting. She cited personal reasons for her resignation, thanked the council and pledged to continue serving the community in various ways.
    Subsequently, Myers indicated that she had moved from the ward, making her ineligible.
    The agenda for tonight's meeting shows that Jenks will nominate a successor. Council acceptance of the nomination will be required.
    Another city office will be up for discussion when Jenks asks the council to consider changing the city prosecuting attorney's position from elected to appointed.
    The current city attorney, Brendon Fox, was appointed March 18 to succeed Robert J. "Jeff" Stoltz, who resigned when he moved from Rolla.
    Fox, who challenged Stoltz in the April 2012 election, also serves as an assistant county prosecutor, a job he has held since January 2011. He is a graduate of Stanford University and the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law.
    In other business or discussion:
    • The council will hear first reading of an ordinance for an agreement with Rolla Asphalt to work on improvements at Rolla National Airport.
    • Another first reading will be heard for a project supplemental agreement with Jviation Inc. for work at the airport.
    • The council will consider authorizing City Administrator John Butz to sell surplus railroad memorabilia.
    • Bids will be considered on three vehicles.
    • The council will consider appointment of Josh Meyer to succeed Lawrence C. George on the Rolla Housing Authority board.
    • A closed session to discuss real estate is planned.
