Two dozen seek a seat on CTRMA board

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 by Caleb Pritchard

The pool to be Travis County’s next appointee to the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority board is crowded. On Tuesday, Julie Wheeler of the Intergovernmental Relations Office reported to the Commissioners Court that the open call for applications to fill the seats currently occupied by Charles Heimsath and David Armbrust yielded 24 responses, a haul that drew a literal kudos from County Judge Sarah Eckhardt. While the identities of the applicants remain under wraps for now, both Armbrust and Heimsath indicated that they would go through the effort to retain their seats. A court-appointed subcommittee will meet this week to winnow the names down and bring back a shortlist of proposed finalists next Tuesday. The court is scheduled to interview the candidates during a special session on Jan. 25. The final decisions are set to take place during the regular meeting on Jan. 30.
