LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS / Cleveland Heights-University Heights Board of Education meeting highlights [online 12-1-2015]

DECEMBER 1, 2015

  • Library board interviews
  • Joint meeting with library board request

Board President Nancy Peppler was absent.

Library board interviews

This meeting was held to interview and elect one person to the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library Board of Trustees. The board members interviewed the following applicants to fill a seven-year term: E. Richard Cslotko, Matthew Ginn, Dennis R. Sutcliffe and Suzann Moskowitz.

The Cleveland Heights-University Heights Board of Education must interview library trustee candidates because the Heights Library was established by the board of education as a school-district free public library. The Ohio Revised Code designates the school district as the taxing and appointing authority of school district libraries.

The candidates were asked several questions, including: whether they were confident that they could both complete the seven-year term and devote the time required; what challenges trustees face; what the role is of the trustee members; and what they perceived to be the school board-library relationship.

The board voted to appoint Suzann Moskowitz to the library board.

Joint meeting with library board request

A request was made by the library board to hold a joint meeting with the school board at a later date.
