Home Place Advisory Board public interviews set for Sept. 10


Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard will soon conduct public interviews for two appointed positions to the Home Place Advisory Board.

The interviews are set to begin at 5:30 p.m. Sept. 10 in the city council chambers at City Hall. City officials declined to identify the candidates, but everyone who applied and lives within Home Place will be interviewed.

The city has been working to form a temporary, state-mandated Home Place Advisory Board to provide input on how excess tax dollars collected from the annexed area should be spent. Brainard has said he doesn’t expect Carmel to have any excess funds, but he plans to use the group as a “sounding board” for plans for the area.

Some advisory board positions must be filled by specific individuals. For example, a township trustee and Carmel engineer must sit on the board. But there are also four citizen member positions that can be filled by any Home Place residents. Two of these positions must be appointed by the mayor, while the other two must be appointed by the Hamilton County Commissioners. The positions are voluntary and will not receive any salary.

There are no specific rules for how often the Home Place Advisory Board must meet. It is likely that the board will not have regular recurring meetings but will meet only when there is a need.
