The City of Chula Vista is accepting applications for Port Commissioner to fill the vacancy created when Bill Hall resigned July 31. At its regular meeting August 8, the City Council accepted Hall’s resignation and agreed to move forward immediately to fill the position. The current vacancy expires on January 2, 2007.

Chula Vista has one representative on the Board of Port Commissioners. Only Chula Vista residents are eligible to apply. Applicants must submit an application form, a resume and complete a Form 700 Financial Disclosure Statement.

Applications are now being accepted at the City Clerk’s Office until 3 p.m. August 18. By 5 p.m. the same day, all applications will be distributed to City Councilmembers. At the Council meeting on Tuesday, August 22, each Councilmember will submit the name or names of the candidates they want to interview. Applicants receiving two or more votes will be identified by name and continue moving through the interview process.

The Council will hold a special meeting, possibly as early as August 29, to conduct final interviews. Depending on the number of candidates, interviews may be continued to a future date. When the interview process has ended, the council will vote in public until a candidate receives at least three votes.

Applications are available online at or at City Hall in the City Council offices or the City Clerk’s office. City Hall is located at 276 Fourth Avenue.
