Mayor Jim Restucci appointed Debbie Mendoza and DeLeesa Restucci to the Sunnyside Arts Commission at Monday night’s council meeting.
Councilman Jason Raines asked if the appointment of the mayor’s wife is a conflict of interest. Mayor Restucci said he had consulted the city attorney and the municipal research and services center and was told there is no conflict because the position is not paid and also because the position has been open for more than a year without anyone applying.
It was also noted that there are more vacancies on the commission that need to be filled.
