Jackson Votes To Reappoint Mayor Gonsalves

The Jackson City Council has voted to reappoint Connie Gonsalves as Mayor, and the City will begin a search for a new Fire Chief.   Meeting last night, the Jackson City Council voted to keep Connie Gonsalves as city Mayor for 2018.   Gonsalves oversaw much change in the city over the last year, including the hiring of new City Manager for first time in decades.   Robert Stimpson was voted Vice-Mayor.    At the meeting, it was announced that Jackson Fire Chief Mark Morton has retired due to medical reasons. Morton has been with the Jackson fire department for 23 years, and served as Chief for 13.  He has struggled with a back injury and related surgeries in recent years.   The City has begun the process of recruiting candidates for the now-open position.    In other business, the Council directed city staff to open up the bidding process to allow cattle grazing on the Oro de Amador property.    The current contract expired and the company that previously grazed cattle on city land has withdrawn.   The City earned just under $4,500 on the grazing.
