The selection process may include:

  2. requesting that each applicant appear before the Board in open session to provide a statement and answer questions.

Final selection of the individual to fill the Board vacancy will be determined by a majority vote of the remaining voting members of the Board   At the request of any Board member, balloting will be conducted in secret.
