The Brownstown Town Council will soon be making an appointment to the Brownstown Central Community School Corp. board of trustees.
Scott Shade’s four-year term expires June 30. He initially joined the board in 2013 after being appointed by the council to fill the spot left open by the death of longtime board member Jack Montgomery.
In June 2016, the council unanimously chose to retain Shade for the seat. The only other applicant was Sam Markel. Shade currently serves as president of the school board.
The school board has two members appointed by the town council, and the other five are appointed by township trustees.
During a meeting via Zoom on Monday night, the town council announced it is accepting letters of interest through May 1. Applicants must live within town limits.
The town hall currently is closed to the public, so letters of interest may be mailed to Brownstown Town Hall, 200 W. Walnut St., Brownstown, IN 47220 or placed in the drop box located inside the vestibule at the town hall.
The council will begin reviewing applicants in May and vote on the appointment at one of the meetings that month or in June.
