NORWALK COUNCILMEMBER WANTS TO CAN THE PLANNING COMMISSIONER THAT HE APPOINTED

BY ARNOLD ADLER / HERALD AMERICAN

NORWALK — The City Council will consider a request from Councilman Rick Ramirez to dismiss his appointed Planning Commissioner Marcel Rodarte at the April 6 council meeting.

“It’s absolutely a political move,” said Rodarte, who is expected to run for City Council in March 2011. Rodarte said he has contacted the city attorney and believes it would take a council majority to remove him. He said he plans to be at the meeting to argue his case.

Ramirez reportedly asked city staff to send a letter to Rodarte, dated March 17, advising him he was being removed from the commission. The only reason for Rodarte’s removal cited in the letter was to give someone else the opportunity of serving. The letter compliments Rodarte on his work on the commission over the last three years.
