San Ramon council to conduct interviews for Parks Commission

Special meeting to be held Monday starting at 4:30 p.m.

San Ramon is in line to have some new city officials join their ranks, when the City Council gathers for a special meeting Monday to interview residents who are vying to join the city’s Parks and Community Services Commission.

To start the meeting, the council will conduct interviews with members of the city’s Teen Council who are interested in serving on the Parks Commission as a student representative. The student representative will be responsible for representing the interests of San Ramon’s youth population on matters related to parks services.

According to a city staff report by deputy city clerk Jocelyn Kwong, the council anticipates appointing one member to serve on the commission for a term ending in May 2020, and another to serve May 2020 through May 2021.

After appointing a student representative, the council will adjourn and reconvene to interview six applicants who have expressed interest in serving on one of the three regular seats available on the City’s Parks Commission.

The six residents who have expressed interest include Aparna Khobragade, Terry Koehne, Shelly Lewis (incumbent), Julia Oseland, Scott Roberts and Marisol Rubio.

The San Ramon City Council will hold its special meeting to appoint a student representative at 4:30 p.m., and to appoint regular members later at 6:30 p.m. Both meetings will be held Monday at the City Hall Large Conference Room, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road.
