Centerville council deadlocks on mayor's compensation request

CENTERVILLE — The Centerville City Council at Monday's meeting at City Hall voted 2-2 to a request made by Mayor Jim Senior for additional compensation for extra hours he worked the past few months since the absence of Kim Crego.

The agenda item failed to pass due to the lack of a majority vote.

Councilmen Rob Lind and Randy Marcussen voted for the request while councilmen Darrin Hamilton and Edwin Brand voted against the request for additional compensation of approximately $1,000. Councilman Richard Smith was not present.

Senior said he volunteered his time when he saw extra work pile up. Lind said he asked Senior to help out when he could.

"The additional work was there and I felt I needed to help," Senior said.

The council voted to accept the resignation of councilman Randy Marcussen, effective Feb. 24, and passed a resolution declaring their intent to fill the vacancy by appointment.

Individuals interested in the vacated council seat have until the morning of March 29 to bring a letter of interest to City Hall. The council during their April 1 meeting will appoint someone to fill the vacancy who will serve until the election this November.
