I PAGE2 EASTERN COLORADO PLAINSMAN THURS., APR. 17, 1980, we pI nnln The Hugo Town Board, during its April meeting, failed again to come up with any type of definite plan in obtaining a replacement for Town Clerk Bill Dutro. Some months ago, when Dutro announced his plans to leave the clerk's position, he dearly outlined to the board his intention of leav- ing the post by October 1980. The town board agreed when Dutro made his announcement that it may not be a bad idea to start looking for a replacement, several months before Dutro's departure. That would give the individual hired an opportunity to learn the ins-and-outs of a very complicated and multi-faceted position. Mayor Sterling has, at severaltown board meetings, encouraged members of Hugo's governing body to begin to formulate plans for a replacement for Dutro. Each time the subject has surfaced, many blank looks can be observed around the table which determines the future of this eastern Colorado community. If there are questions as to how to go about replacing a chief oper ating officer for a community like this, there are several sources available, both locally and through state agencies. A good starting point for the town board would be to form a com- mittee, assessing the needs of Hugo and what skills a replacement for Dutro would need. Next, a specific job outline of what the town clerk now does would be needed, along with what that position would entail in the future. Perhaps there should be a review of the salary paid the individual, and a listing of the benefits of the job. We are sure that, in committee form, it would not be quite as difficult in determining what exactly the position pays, though that information was a little hard to come by at the last town board meeting. After the committee decides what the duties of the job are, after a salary has been set and the type of educational requirements needed for the position are made clear, perhaps some sort of job announce- ment could be made. Local papers could be used; we even dare sug- gest an ad in The Limon Leader so that wider exposure of the job would be made available, and that perhaps there would be some sort of candidate selection. After applications are received, and a list of finalists is determined, interviews could be set. Then the undesirables could be weeded out, whereby a fmal selection could then be made. 4 We further suggest the possible involvement of some outside com- munities in the interview process, and perhaps even some private citizens. 4 In fact, this whole committee idea could involve private citizens, members of the council, and even the eouneil as a whole;, .... 4 This may seem a bit on the 'going-overboard-side,' but we urge 4 the Hugo Town Board to come to a workable solution to fred a re- 4 placement for Dutro. We also urge consideration for what is needed for the position, and we urge the town board to begin taking applica- tions from interested parties. More definitive plans are needed than 4 just questioning-each town board member if they have thought of 4 anyone to take Big s job. Set your goals and plans for this very important decision now; the 4 person you will'select for this position will determine the future of Hugo. . Offers to sell wheat by 47 Lincoln County producers have been accepted by the Commodity Credit Corpora- tion (CCC), through the Linc- oln County Agricultural Sta- bilization and Conservation Service (ASCS) office, this week, according to Earl Mc- Donnell, executive director. The offers total 504,575 bushels, and represent 85 per cent of the total offers, Mc- Donnell said. The base price is $3.55 per bushel, subject to discounts and premiums if different than No. 1 wheat. McDonnell said that CCC is removing the wheat from the marketplace to offset the ef- fect of suspending exports to the Soviet Union. iiii - " , i| li , , ,,,,, , , EASTERN COI RhJBO PLAINSMAN P.o.
