On Tuesday, January 9, 2007, the Board of Trustees of Nimishillen Township met in special session at 6:30 P.M. at the Nimishillen Township Hall with the following Trustees present - Vice President Lisa R. Shafer and Trustee Michael L. Lynch.
Lisa Shafer opened the special meeting at 6:43 PM and moved to go into executive session for the purpose of interviewing candidates for trustee, seconded by Mike Lynch. Roll call voting: Lisa Shafer – yes and Mike Lynch – yes. MOTION CARRIED.

Lisa Shafer stated she and Mike have a really hard decision to make. She said they interviewed four outstanding candidates and felt each one would make a good trustee. She explained each candidate was asked the same ten (10) questions and a scoring system was used to evaluate each candidate. Mrs. Shafer said for her, it came down to two specific questions – the amount of time each candidate would be able to devote to the job and their flexibility to the job.
Mike Lynch said he agreed with Lisa stating all four candidates were outstanding in their thought process and how they would handle situations that might arise. The key issue for him was who would be available to fulfill certain commitments. Mr. Lynch said each candidate gave fantastic answers.
With that being said, Lisa Shafer moved to appoint Allen Gress as trustee, seconded by Mike Lynch. Roll call voting: Lisa Shafer – yes and Mike Lynch – yes. MOTION CARRIED.
Lisa Shafer said she would contact Mr. Gress and inform him of the appointment and asked Sharon to call Mr. Gress in the morning to start the process of getting him bonded and fill out paperwork.
Mr. Gress will be sworn in at the January 11, 2007 organizational meeting at 6:30 PM.
Lisa Shafer moved to adjourn, seconded by Mike Lynch. Roll call voting: Lisa Shafer – yes and Mike Lynch – yes. MOTION CARRIED.
The meeting adjourned at 8:42 PM.
