CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – Mahoning County Probate Judge Robert Rusu has set a June 13 deadline for his selection committee to have a recommendation on who will be the next member of the Mill Creek MetroParks Board of Commissioners.
Of the 11 members of Judge Rusu’s hand-picked selection committee, 10 met this evening at the Canfield Library.
The committee will make a recommendation to the judge on who the next board member will be. A member of the committee cannot become a board member.
“This was the first meeting. I wanted to get everybody together, introduce everybody, tell them what I expect and what I’m hoping for coming from this committee. And then I’m going to assume they’re going to want to meet a couple times to screen the candidates with their resumes and applications and then make a recommendation to me,” Rusu said.
Judge Rusu did say he would be a bit flexible on the June 13 deadline, but was insistent on getting the replacement made quickly.
