Charlie Melidosian sworn in as the Fifth Ward Alderman

The City Council approved Acting Mayor Maloney’s appointment of Charlie Melidosian as Fifth Ward Alderman, following the passing of Alderman Dan Knight.  A committee of five Fifth Ward residents, selected by the Acting Mayor, interviewed eight candidates and deliberated during three public sessions held at City Hall on January 23, 24 and 29.  The committee ultimately recommended Charlie Melidosian to the Acting Mayor.

In accordance with the rules detailed in Section 3.1-10-50 of the Illinois Municipal Code, Alderman Melidosian was appointed to serve until the end of the late Alderman Knight’s term in April 2019. 

Alderman Melidosian is a Park Ridge native and has resided in the fifth ward for 20 years.  He works as a Manager of Information Security. 

The Elected Officials wish to thank the committee members and those who volunteered to fill the vacancy for their commitment and service to the City.  The committee members indicated that all who applied were excellent candidates and the decision was a difficult one.
