The Chelsea City Council made numerous appointments to county and state boards at its meeting Tuesday.
Included in those appointments were:
- Dustin Sunthemier, the newest member of the Chelsea City Council, jumped right into his role following a brief swearing-in ceremony and volunteered to serve as a representative on the Chelsea Recreation Council and Chelsea Farmers Market. Sunthemier replaces former councilman Kent Martinez-Kratz, who was elected to the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners during the 2012 general election.
- Councilman Rod Anderson will remain on the Chelsea Area Fire Authority, with Cheri Albertson as an alternate.
- Mayor Jason Lindauer will remain as the city's delegate for the Downtown Development Authority and Ann Arbor SPARK.
- Trustee Ann Feeney will continue to represent Chelsea on the Washtenaw Area Value Express Board and Southeast Michigan Council of Governments.
- Trustee Frank Hammer will serve as the city's representative for the Western Washtenaw Recycling Authority.
"There are 24 committees that members of our council serve on. Some of them require a significant investment of time, and some have not met in my tenure (as mayor)," Lindauer said. "Representatives serve as the main conduit to express the concerns of our citizens to these boards and commissions and also to bring information back to us from the county and state level."
A complete list of appointments is available on the city's website, http://www.city-chelsea.org/.
In other action:
- Sue Corey, a representative of the Chelsea Aquatic Club, informed the council that the club is planning a children's triathlon. The event will take place on June 8, and is open to children ages 7-14. The triathlon will take place at Beach Middle School. Details on the route will be published on Patch as more information becomes available.
