Council votes unanimously to fill vacancies on boards, commissions

From staff reports

At this past Monday’s Council meeting, Beaufort County Council unanimously voted on several appointments and re-appointments to fill vacancies on Boards and Commissions.

“The citizens listed below have decided to help make our County better,” Beaufort County Public Information Officer Chris Ophardt said in a release. “Citizen involvement in our government is key to ensuring the County staff and members of County Council have a strong understanding of the County’s needs.”

Beaufort County Boards and Commissions are Council-appointed volunteer opportunities for community members to share their expertise, input, and ideas. The Boards and Commissions help County Council anticipate, fund, and provide a cost-effective level of service.

Beaufort County’s population is expected to reach 216,000 within the next few years. That growth means increased demands on services, programs, infrastructure, and the need for increased preservation and protection of the County’s natural resources and beauty.

The following County residents were appointed/reappointed to the following Beaufort County Boards:

Board of Assessment Appeals – Robert Bible

Planning Commission Ed Pappas, Daniel Riedel

Design Review Board – James Akins, John Michael Brock

Historic Preservation Review Board – Cheryl Steele, Aileen LeBlanc

Keep Beaufort County Beautiful Board – Jeff Althoff, Randy Boehme, Christopher Campbell, Pamela Floyd, Jean Fruh, Joan Gualdoni, Carol Murphy, Diane Voge, Brenda McFee

Stormwater Utility Board – Steve Andrews, Allyn Schneider

Transportation Committee – Paul Manning

Lowcountry Regional Transportation Authority – Barbara Childs

Some vacancies are limited to specific Council Districts. Some are looking for volunteers with specific expertise, while others welcome volunteers from anywhere in Beaufort County. To review the current list of vacancies and requirements, visit https://bit.ly/3MtqKWg.
