At the Eudora Planning Commission meeting on December 1, Dr. Patrick Jankowski announced that he will be moving to outside the city limits after first of the year and therefore would be no longer eligible to serve on the Eudora Planning Commission.
Jankowski will resign his position effective February 1, 2011.
Kurt von Achen, Chairman of the Planning Commission, had nothing but praise for Jankowski’s service on the Commission. “He’s been great. He’s such a hard worker and always prepared. I really appreciated all he has done for the Commission.”
“I’m gonna miss him, but at the same time, I’m very happy for him. I know he’s wanted to move out towards the country for a while now.” von Achen said.
It will now be up to Mayor Scott Hopson to appoint a replacement for Jankowski. “I have no names yet to fill the vacancy.” Hopson said. “I’m going to be looking for someone and I want to listen to the Planning Commission members and particularly CHhirman von Achen’s recommendations.”
The Eudora City Council will need to approve any candidate selected by Hopson.
