City Clerk/Treasurer Ina Robbins said that since the commission is no longer meeting, Main Street Pineville was “left out in the cold.” During a special called meeting Tuesday night, the city council created a Board of Directors that will now meet on a regular basis and direct the action of the program.
The board will consist of seven members appointed by Mayor Sherwin Rader and will have the following officers: chair, co-chair, secretary, and treasurer. According to the ordinance, the secretary of the board will be the Main Street Director, who is Joanna Foley and works on a part-time basis. The treasurer will be the city clerk/treasurer, who is currently Ina Robbins.
The board will begin meeting on the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. and will follow standard protocol for public meetings. The secretary and the treasurer are non-voting officers. The ordinance says that the City of Pineville or Main Street Pineville Board of Directors may remove officers on the board when sufficient cause exists.
