Delta County Commissioners, county planning commission and county planning department reorganized the county planning commission, effective at the beginning of 2019, to provide for equal representations from each of the three commission districts, with staggered terms on each district, and for addition of an associate member for each district.
Associate members will participate equally in discussion of all matters before the planning commission but will not vote on matters unless a regular member of the planning commission is absent at that particular meeting.
Tenure as an associate member is also seen as training for future membership as a planning commission member.
Appointments and terms are as follows.
District 1(a), 2019-2020, Angela Mackey; District 1(b), 2019-2021, Steve Shea; District 1(c), 2019-2022, Steve Schrock; associate member, Dick Gilmore, 2019-2022.
