Afton planning commission welcomes new members
The Afton Planning Commission had its first meeting with a quorum, the first since the group's January meeting, on March 5 with three new members, a new vice-chair and a new chair.
Marcia Dahleen, Kitty Kilmer and Scott Patten took the oath of office and were sworn into their new positions and Barbara Ronningen was re-sworn into her current position.
The commission also elected a new chair, Ronningen, and a new vice-chair, Patten, since Jim Fox no longer had the desire to remain on as chair. Ronningen was his vice-chair.
Newly-appointed Patten volunteered himself for the position of vice-chair since there were no other takers.
"I will follow your extraordinary leadership wherever it may go," Patten joked.
