Filling a board member vacancy, an update on public opinion polling related to a bond measure, and the second interim report of the 2015-16 budget are on the agenda when Dixon Unified leaders meet tonight.
Trustee Andrew Bloom, citing a family medical issue, resigned from the five-member board March 2, making a public announcement at the March 3 board meeting.
Superintendent Brian Dolan will tell the board its several ways it can fill the seat.
They include making a provisional appointment until the next general election, on Nov. 8. That person will then hold office until the end of Bloom’s term, Dec. 7, 2018. Secondly, the board may order a special election, but, under state law, there is not enough time to hold such an election before the Nov. 8 general election. Therefore, the board would operate with only four members until the November election.
