Candidates for the position of Administrative Assistant for the Corbin Tourism and Convention Commission were interviewed, but no decision was made during the board’s special meeting Wednesday.
The special-called session began at 5:30 p.m. at the board’s office on Depot Street, with board members going immediately into executive session. No formal action was taken.
Board Chairman Sudhir Patel said after the meeting four candidates were interviewed.
The administrative assistant position hasn’t been filled full-time since Karen Vanover was injured late last year in an accident. She continues to recuperate.
On Aug. 6, applications turned into the commission were discussed at a special meeting, but no action was taken after board members went into executive session. Back on July 9, board members Tania Marcum, Jackie Willis and Sherry Logan were approved to review applications for the position and to report back to the full tourism board. On April 9, the board approved advertising for the job, which would be temporary but would lead up to a full-time position.
The Tourism Board’s next regular session is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 10 at noon.
