Despite an effort by its Board of Directors, the Ojai Valley Sanitary District (OVSD) still lacks a director for its District 7. Meeting in regular session Monday, the six sitting directors interviewed four candidates vying to finish the term of William Murphy, who resigned from the Board July 8. The item was tabled before the Board came anywhere close to making a decision.
“The Board has always had the option to fill a vacancy by appointment or call a special election,” OVSD General Manager Jeff Palmer said Tuesday, “or to not fill it and let it be decided by the regular election process.” In this case, he said, the directors had opted for the latter.
