Tish Oelke and Carl Jahn have been appointed to serve on the City of Delta Planning Commission.
Both previously served two terms, or six consecutive years on the planning commission, which normally would have excluded them from consideration — except there were no other applicants.
The openings were advertised in the DCI and on the city website from mid-January to April. Only Oelke and Jahn applied for the seven-member board.
Oelke's most recent term ended in March 2012; Jahn's term ended this March.
In discussing the appointments, city council members and staff said both Oelke and Jahn understand city code and the issues facing the city.
"I don't think term limits apply at this point in time," councilmember Ray Penick said.
Their appointment was unanimously approved.blog comments powered by Disqus
