The Planning Commission picked up a new member in LeRoy Bickert, who was elected to a five-year term. He replaces Robert Hicks, whose term ended at the completion of 2011.

According to Dravecz, Hicks will remain on the commission as a temporary alternate until a matter that was continued into 2012 has been voted on. The commission will then look for a new alternate, Dravecz said.
