Hamilton resident needed to represent city on transportation board

Hamilton is looking for someone — who must be a city resident — to replace the late Jim Blount on the Butler County Transportation Improvement District.

Hamilton City Council will make the appointment to the TID’s board of trustees to replace Blount, a historian who focused on Hamilton and Butler County issues and was a longtime proponent of transportation improvements as well as a longtime TID representative.

The position is volunteer and requires a good amount of work. It also allows someone to play a significant part in the region’s development and area transportation improvements, as Blount did.

The term will begin as soon as possible after the application due date of 5 p.m. Oct. 23. Another requirement of applicants: They must be available for meetings that happen 8:30 a.m. on the second Wednesday of each month at the TID offices at 1921 Fairgrove Ave. in Hamilton.

The TID term to be filled will end Dec. 31, 2018, but council will consider appointing the person to a full two-year term at that point.

According to a city posting for the position, “The TID provides a local structure which coordinates federal, state, and local resources in planning, financing, constructing, and operating transportation projects.

The posting adds: “As leaders across the country call for greater innovation and accelerated construction schedules, the TID is proving the possibilities for better government.”
