CRESTVIEW — The Main Street Crestview Association and Community Redevelopment Agency could share a program director if the CRA approves such a proposal.

Main Street President Ellis Conner is requesting that the CRA board fund his program director position under such an arrangement.

The downtown renewal association has lacked a full-time director since the CRA board withdrew the position's funding in 2012. The board currently relies on the city clerk's office and other city departments for support.

CRA board members will consider the request during the 2014-15 budgeting process at a future meeting.

Employee or contractor

Conner said the position, for which he requested a $40,000 salary, could be filled by a city employee or a contractor.

CRA board members Tom Gordon and Robyn Helt agreed Monday that it would be easy to contract such a position but might be harder to oversee.
