CAPC hires office coordinator
The Eureka Springs City Advertising and Promotion Commission has a new employee.
At a special called meeting on Monday, Dec. 13, the commission unanimously voted to hire Libby Johnson for the office coordinator position. Chair Jeff Carter said the purpose of the meeting was to discuss the job opening of office coordinator and commissioner Melissa Greene moved to go into executive session to discuss the hiring of Libby Johnson.
The commission met in executive session for approximately 12 minutes before returning to the Auditorium stage. Greene moved to end the executive session and the commission unanimously agreed to do so. Greene then said she wanted to explain some things.
“In city and state code, it’s very clearly written that the commission hires, oversees and terminates, and so we will always go with the recommendations [made by] our director but it is our job to hire, terminate and oversee,” Greene said. “That was the reason for this meeting.”
Greene then moved to hire Johnson at a rate of $18 an hour. Johnson will start in two weeks, Greene said, after a background check is completed. According to her resume, Johnson has experience as a front office manager and accounts payable specialist. Johnson graduated from Bentonville High School and resides in Holiday Island.
