FAIRFIELD — A former basketball coach who now works at Mission Solano, the volunteer program coordinator for the city and a supervisor at Cost Plus World Market seek the city clerk post left open by the resignation of Jeanette Bellinder.
Bellinder stepped down in December to begin a new job as chief deputy clerk for the Solano County Board of Supervisors.
Thomas Bailey, who has coached basketball at Rio Linda, Union Mine, Capital Christian, Cordova and West Campus high schools, volunteer program coordinator Karen Rees and Tanya McKown, a supervisor at Cost Plus since 2011, will be interviewed Tuesday at the City Council meeting.
The part-time, elected position pays $190 a month.
Fairfield City Council members, advised that a special election for the city clerk would cost between $502,280 and $753,420, decided against having an election for the post. The council will instead interview the three applicants and appoint one as city clerk.
The city staff recommends the three people be interviewed in alphabetical order. Applicants should also have five minutes each to talk about why they should be appointed city clerk, the city staff added.
Council members begin their meeting at 6 p.m. in the council chambers at 1000 Webster St. in Fairfield.
