Charles Vitale, who retired earlier this year, served as one of these Commission appointments and his two-year term expires in March of 2011. Staff recommends that Commission appoint Sergeant Dan Ransone to fill this vacancy. The item was tabled at the August 10th meeting as Commissioner Alu asked the Commission to consider another person to fill the vacancy. City Attorney Stuart Michelson has determined that Section 11-11(a)(2) of the City’s Code only allows the City Commission to appoint two (2) members to the police pension board. At present, the City Commission has one appointee and one vacancy. As such, only one person may be appointed to fill the vacant position.
