— The Clinton Village Board on Tuesday night could choose a method to replace board member Steve Quillen.

Quillen resigned from the board because a change at his day job limited the amount of time he could devote to village business, President Mary Jensen said.


Board members likely have some candidates in mind for Quillen’s replacement, Jensen said. In the past, Jensen has suggested people to replace resigning candidates, and the board has voted to approve them, she said.


The board likely will talk about the issue and make a decision at a future meeting, Jensen said.


In January 2007, Quillen was appointed to the board to replace Dennis Esselman, who resigned.


Quillen was elected in April 2007. He ran unopposed and was re-elected in April 2009.


Quillen was the chairman of the public safety and welfare committee and a member of the finance committee.


The village board on Tuesday also will talk about a policy to address attendance at committee meetings. Some committee members have had poor attendance, Jensen said. The board is considering a disciplinary policy, she said.


The board will meet at 7 p.m. in the village hall, 301 Cross St.
