On March 5, the Job Development Authority held a special meeting to re-address several items from last week's elections at the JDA, discuss the executive director search, and review a request from the hospital for daycare support.

Rob St. Michel has declined to be the president/chairman after reviewing his responsibilities to his businesses, and other involvements in the community. Father Tom asked for other nominations, and Tanner Johnson was nominated, he accepted, and the motion was passed.

In other items, the executive search team announced that everyone had removed themselves from seeking the executive director position. The JDA is still without a director, and the board will resume the search for a new candidate. A discussion was held on various options for pursuing someone possibly from the universities.

The several open board positions were discussed. Father Tom Graner reported there is one person that is considering, but since they were not present at the meeting, could not be nominated at this time. Please refer interested candidates to a board member.

There was a request from the hospital to have the JDA possibly partially fund Kids Next Door, the daycare center at the Heart of America Medical Center. Jennifer Stewart said they needed more financial data to make any decisions. Stewart took on the tasks of reviewing the financial data and will report back at the next meeting of the JDA, and the board can decide a direction at that time.

In other news, several lots at the Chambers addition have an offer pending, but none have been solidified yet. The next regular meeting of the JDA committee will be on the fourth Thursday, March 22 at noon in the JDA offices.
