The Rye City Council addressed two pressing Rye Golf Club issues at its Nov. 28 meeting: filling a vacant commission seat and amending the rules to allow the vacant seat to be filled.
The council approved the resolutions to help the volunteer Rye Golf Club Commission run the club while an outside counsel conducts a legal investigation into the actions of Rye Golf Club Manager Scott Yandrasevich. Yandrasevich’s management was questioned this fall when RGC members learned of seemingly excessive overtime costs and a possible conflict of interested with a local temporary staffing agency. Read more on that here.
The Commission asked the council to approve two resolutions that would help them manage the club in the absense of a general manager. City officials condoned the commission’s efforts and approved a resolution for the RGC Commission to amend their Nominations, Elections and Voting Eligibility procedures to maintain a Commission level of nine members at the Nov. 28 City Council meeting. Prior the council’s approval of that change, the Commission procedures adopted in July 2012 allowed for a level of eight members. Read more on that here.
Also, because former RGC Commission Chair Rich Verille resigned in October, there has been a vacancy on the Commission that its remaining members wished to fill with the next eligible member from the last election on Sept. 27, 2012, Angela Sposato. The Council appointed Sposato to that position to serve “until the next regular election.”
