Two Sartell commissions will get off to a fresh start this year with the appointments of four new members, which the council approved at its Jan. 12 meeting.
The two new members of the Economic Development Commission are Dawn Loberg and Frank Wohletz. Wohletz was appointed to serve through Dec. 31, 2017 and Loberg Dec. 31, 2015.
The new members of the Sartell Planning Commission are Anna Gruber and Dawn Moen. Gruber is expected to serve until Dec. 31, 2017 and Moen through Dec. 31, 2016.
The four candidates were interviewed last month by council members Steve Hennes, Amy Braig-Lindstrom and David Peterson and were then recommended for council approval, which was granted.
The other three current members of the planning commission are Ryan Fitzthum and Gary Ormann, whose terms expire at the end of 2015; and Glen Person, whose term will expire at the end of 2016.
The other current members of the economic development commission and their terms of expiration are Brian Dauer (end of 2016), Jim Illies Jr. (end of 2017), Mike Schoenecker (end of 2015), Bruce Stainbrook (end of 2015), Julie Whitney (end of 2015) and Heladio Zavala (end of 2016).
