Downtown business group names temporary executive


Third Avenue Village Association Board of Directors voted to place Event Manager Kelly Lannom as the interim executive director as it is expected to move forward in pursuing the hiring of New City America, Inc. as its management consultant during a scheduled July 9 board meeting.

Board member Kevin Pointer said the board made it “very clear in establishing and clarifying what it was seeking in a management consulting firm and that it was well laid out in the RFP document.”

He said that being on the ad hoc committee that worked on the RFP, he felt that the proposal met all the qualifications.

New City America was the only company that answered TAVA’s Request for Proposal.
Pointer made a motion that TAVA direct its legal counsel to initiate and carry out negotiations with New City America for management and consulting services for PBID and BID, designate an ad hoc committee to complete due diligence and reference checks on New City America no later than July 28, and for TAVA’s legal counsel prepare and present an agreement between TAVA and New City America consistent with New City America’s proposal and in accordance with TAVA bylaws, and contract be presented to the board no later than July 28.

Lannom will serve as interim executive director until a management consulting firm is hired as an at-will employee for $3,000 per month.
