Six nominations have been appointed to local boards and committees during by the city.
With many terms expiring and some posts left vacant, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen appointed a few returning and new members to a variety of municipal boards. The appointments come following a new city ordinance that requires all nominations to provide paperwork citing eligibility and qualification, as well as attendance to mandatory training sessions.
Some of those board posts remain open due to lack of qualification either by non-eligibility or lack of attendance to the required board training.
