For months, the St. Joseph Park Board lacked members but now residents have stepped up to serve.
The City Council at its Aug. 3 meeting appointed members nominated by Mayor Rick Schultz.
The appointees are Elijah Stenman, Abby Lyon, Andy Rennecke, Mary Stommes and Tim Rocky. In addition, Keith Schleper will be the St. Joseph Lions liaison, John Anderson will be the city staff liaison and City Council member Anne Buckvold will represent the City Council and will be a voting member of the board.
In voting to approve the appointees, City Council member Bob Loso asked the new people receive training on their statutory roles and responsibilities.
The board meets at 6 p.m. the fourth Monday of the month at City Hall.
