Agenda Item Brief:

With the swearing in of Ron Smith as the Sparks Mayor, the position of Mayor pro tempore was vacated. Under the Sparks Charter, the Mayor has the duty to nominate one member of the Council to serve in the position of Mayor pro tempore.



Background:

In the City of Sparks Charter in Article III-Executive Department under Sec. 3.010 Mayor: Duties; Mayor pro tempore, the Mayor has a duty to nominate a member of the Council to serve as the Mayor Pro tempore. The Charter reads:

 3.  The Mayor shall nominate a member of the City Council to be Mayor pro tempore. The nominee must be approved by a majority of the total number of members of the City Council. If so approved, the nominee shall be Mayor pro tempore. He or she shall:

      (a) Hold the office and title until the next general election without additional compensation, except as otherwise provided in paragraph (c).

      (b) Perform the duties of Mayor during the temporary absence or disability of the Mayor without loss of his or her rights and powers as a member of the Council.

      (c) Act as Mayor until the next general election if the office of Mayor becomes vacant and draw the salary of Mayor. His or her salary and position as a member of the Council cease.



Analysis:

Mayor Smith will determine who he chooses to serve as Mayor pro tempore. The Council will consider the Mayor’s nominee and decide to approve or not approve.



Alternatives:
  1. The Council could approve the Mayor’s nomination for Mayor pro tempore.
  2. The Council could not approve the Mayor’s nomination for Mayor pro tempore.


Recommended Motion:

I move to approve the Mayor’s nomination of __________________ to serve as the Mayor pro tempore.
