The Anderson County Commission will consider appointing a new commissioner in District 8 on Monday. The new commissioner will replace Robin Biloski, who resigned on August 3 because she and her husband Bill are moving to Madeira Beach, Florida.
Anderson County Commission Chair Robert McKamey will allow voters registered in Anderson County to submit names to the County Commission for consideration before commissioners vote or consider any motion or resolution on filling the position. The names may be submitted in writing to the chair prior to the meeting, or they may be submitted in person at the meeting.
In order for a name to be considered, a member of the County Commission must subsequently nominate the person.
Members of the County Commission may also nominate a candidate or candidates to fill the office or vacancy without the name being submitted by a voter. If the person nominated is not present at the meeting, the person making the nomination shall submit a signed statement from the nominee that the nominee is willing to serve in the office if appointed, according to the meeting agenda.
The new commissioner could be sworn in Monday.
District 8 includes Emory Valley, Hendrix Creek, and Woodland in Oak Ridge.
Biloski was first elected in 2006. She served two four-year terms on County Commission, and she was re-elected in August 2014. She was the only woman on County Commission for eight years, and she served as vice chair for three years and also chaired the Operations Committee.
Biloski was one of two commissioners from District 8. Myron Iwanski is the other.
The Monday meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in Room 312 in the Anderson County Courthouse in Clinton.
