Five Carson City residents in Ward 2 have contacted the city and made preliminary requests to be appointed to fill the supervisor's seat left open following the death of Supervisor Jon Plank last month.
The Board of Supervisors plan to discuss the applicants and procedure to fill the seat at their upcoming meeting Jan. 16, said Mayor Ray Masayko.
Masayko said he would urge the board to consider putting the matter off and hold a special meeting Jan. 24 to decide the issue.
"That way the board may speak with all of the candidates or applicants," Masayko said.
Those who have filed query letters with the city include Shelly Aldean, John Bergstrom, Tony Marangi, Lee Radtke and Isabel Young.
The board will consider four of the applicants and any others that are filed before the position is filled. Supervisors will continue receiving applications until the position is filled, the mayor said.
Young does not qualify for the position as she lives outside of the Ward 2 district, Masayko said.
Bergstrom, a captain in the Carson City Fire Department, may not be eligible because he is a city employee. His status is being reviewed by the District Attorney's Office.
Other applicants are:
-- Aldean, vice president and project manager of The Glenbrook Company/Eden Management and member of the Regional Transportation Commission.
-- Marangi, an independent insurance adjuster and consultant.
-- Radtke, retired from private industry and volunteer for the Children in Transition program.
