CARMEL, IN – The City of Carmel is seeking interested persons and nominations for a new, temporary Advisory Board required in the ordinance that outlines what must take place when Home Place joined the City of Carmel. The board will advise the City of Carmel should excess money remain in a special property tax fund designated to be invested in the Home Place area.
In addition to three members specifically identified in the ordinance, there are four “citizen members” who need to own property and live in the Home Place. The Mayor is to appoint two members and two others are appointed by the County Commissioners.
The Advisory Board’s seven members are listed below:
∎ Township trustee;
∎ The member of the Hamilton County Council that represents the largest number of residents living in Home Place;
∎ Carmel City Engineer;
∎ 2 citizen members appointed by The Mayor;
∎2 citizen members appointed by The Hamilton County Commissioners;
These are voluntary positions, no salaries will be paid. The Advisory Board will only serve until all of the property taxes impounded in the fund are spent.
Interested persons should send their resume and cover letter explaining why they want to serve on the Home Place Advisory Board to Sharon Kibbe (e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday, June 25.
