Tony Charters, who resigned May 28 as executive director of the Frankfort-Franklin County Tourist and Convention Commission, will continue to work for the commission through Aug. 31.

The commission is advertising for a new executive director and the deadline for accepting applications is Monday, July 7. The salary range will be $40,000 to $45,000, "depending on the experience of the person we hire," said Marc Stone, chairman of the board.

Board Treasurer Robin Antenucci said Wednesday the commission has received about 15 applications.

Charters' resignation is effective June 30. However, from July 1 through Aug. 31 he will serve as a consultant. Although he will not have regular office hours during July and August, Charters will be available as required by the chairman, according to the May 28 board meeting minutes.

Charters will receive his full salary from July 1 to Aug. 31; health benefit expenses from July 1 to Dec. 31; tuition fees and book expenses for the third and final semester of "organizational management" at Midway College (where he's working on a degree); any remaining and unused vacation pay; and any previously unreimbursed business expenses.
