“We have 30 days to appoint a board member,” said Olmsted Falls Board of Education President Holly Neumann. “We’ll conduct interviews between Oct. 15 and 20. We hope to appoint the seat by Oct. 31.

“We’re looking for someone who is super-engaged and willing to collaborate with other board members, the superintendent and treasurer. We want someone who is going to ask a lot of questions and really dig in and understand.”

The board president said the ideal applicant will have an understanding of school finances and a familiarity with the district.

As far Bertrand’s service to the community, Neumann called him “an outstanding person” and “one of the finest community members that I know.”

“He served with integrity,” Neumann said. “He was an outstanding fiscal agent for the school district.

“Joe really took time to ask a lot of good questions, was very engaged and just an outstanding leader. As president for several years, he was a really outstanding leader.”

This isn’t the only position the Olmsted Falls Board of Education is looking to fill. Treasurer/CFO Emily Weisbarth’s last day is today (Oct. 7). She’s leaving the district to become an assistant treasurer with Lakewood City Schools.

“We just hired interim-treasure Mark Hullman until we find a permanent treasurer,” Neumann said. “Mark was our former treasurer before Emily.”

Glass vials move along a conveyor at the Gerresheimer AG medical glassware factory in Buende, Germany, on Tuesday, Aug. 11, 2020. Gerresheimer has built up capacity and most of its factories are operating around the clock as the company holds talks with pharma companies, working on a coronavirus vaccine.

Australia’s budget forecasts will assume a coronavirus vaccine will be developed in the next year, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg says.

“The budget takes into account the possibility that is the case,” Frydenberg told Sky News Australia in a segment from an interview to be broadcast Monday”. “We have factored in those issues related to the vaccine and those will be available on budget night.”

Assuming a vaccine is available in 2021 will be a positive for the economic outlook, as it may signal a return to international travel and foreign tourist spending. Frydenberg is set to use his budget on Oct. 6 to ditch fiscal restraints and unveil a massive surge in spending to restart the economy after it fell into its first recession in almost 30 years.

“We have worked hard with international counterparts to secure the vaccine for Australia,” the treasurer said.

Australia has joined the COVAX Facility, part of international partnerships with the World Health Organization and other bodies aiming to ensure equitable access to safe and effective Covid-19 vaccines.
