City Council welcomes new members to health, education and housing board
Richard Johnson and Victor Hogstrom were hand-picked, out of several applicants, for their knowledge and experience. Councilman Larry Grohn said the decision to appoint the new members was taken very seriously, due to the importance each board has on the community.
"Health, education and housing are issues that both the council and the mayor have been very concerned about," said Councilman Grohn, "and this board can help address that issue when issues come before it."
There are currently 37 boards, which are all served by people in the community who volunteer their time and expertise on specific issues.
