The Orchard City Town Board will hold a work session at 6:30 p.m. prior to its regular May 11 monthly meeting to interview applicants for the open trustee position.

Mayor Ken Volgamore was elected last month with two years yet remaining on his trustee term. With four trustee candidates taking the four open seats in the election, Volgamore's elevation left two years of his trustee seat still open.

The regular meeting agenda includes an item for discussion/appointment of a new trustee and that item of business will likely be concluded during the meeting.

Other business on the new town board's first meeting agenda includes electing a mayor pro-tem, handing out assignments for standing committees, an appointment to the town planning commission, and a request for trading water during the irrigating season.

The new trustees and mayor held their first work session together last week. It was a session to familiarize themselves with various duties and responsibilities of public officials, a session that was conducted by town attorney Larry Beckner.

The board members also talked about a flood plain ordinance the town is being required to adopt by state-level officials, and a project to find and purchase a good, used multi-duty dump truck for the road and water departments.

The town is dealing with the aftermath of a water pressure spike event on the East Main line that resulted in some $17,000 in damage claims from town water customers.
