At a special meeting on March 28, 2022, the City Council interviewed applicants and made appointments to fill vacancies on commissions and committees. Drawing on the talents of 30 applicants for 17 vacancies, the City Council made the following appointments:

*Councilmember Andersen recused herself and took no part in the decision on appointments to the Park Commission. (Exedra note: Tom Smegal is Andersen’s brother.*)

Editor’s note: We have asked the city to clarify the discrepancy between vacancies (17) and appointments (16) and will update this information when we hear.

*CORRECTION: This article has been updated to note that Tom Smegal is Andersen’s brother, not her father as originally stated.
