The San Simeon Community Services District Board of Directors will consider who to replace Terry Lambeth at a meeting today, June 21, at 6 p.m. in the Cavalier Plaza banquet room, 250 San Simeon Avenue, San Simeon.
Lambeth resigned effective June 17. The retired real estate appraiser and his wife, Maren Lambeth, have moved to Hawaii.
Directors could also retain Lambeth occasionally on a consultant basis, he said from Hawaii on Tuesday, June 19.
By that afternoon, two people had applied to fill the vacancy: Jane Copeland and Mary Giacoletti, the North Coast Advisory Council environmental representative.
According to Renee Samaniego-Lundy of APTwater, which manages the services district, two other people requested applications but had not returned them by press deadline. To qualify, they had to have returned their paperwork by the end of the business day Wednesday, June 20, after press time.
Lambeth had been on the board without interruption since 2002, spending many of those years as board president. He had been appointed to the board earlier and had served on the district’s Facility Committee starting in 1999.
The district has installed new water-treatment equipment designed to bring the town’s wastewater up to a higher level of cleanliness. The project was required by state water regulators who had fined the district for dozens of effluent violations in 2005 and 2006 in which inadequately treated sewage flowed from the district’s plant into the ocean.
