Teton County commissioners on Wednesday appointed new members to boards that help oversee public health, affordable housing, and recycling and trash disposal.
They held off on making a decision about who to appoint to the county planning commission. They are expected to make two appointments to that body Monday.
Commissioners appointed Joe Burke to the county’s board of health. Burke will replace Pier Trudelle at the start of 2013 and serve a four-year term.
For the Teton County Housing Authority, commissioners picked Brian Siegfried to replace Jack Stout. Siegfried was selected over two other candidates for the five-year term.
Commissioners picked Eric Lovely for the Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling Board and reappointed Herb Brooks to the board. They also voted to trim the solid waste board from nine members to seven.
On Monday, commissioners are slated to pick two candidates for spots on the planning commission.
Mark Newcomb is seeking another term on the board. Peter Stewart, whose term is going to expire, did not reapply. Other applicants are Tim Glick, Bob Nigro, Claire Fuller and Steve Duerr for three-year terms.
The appointments are part of a larger slate officials are expected to fill this month. On Monday, they are scheduled to interview candidates for the Jackson Hole Airport Board, the Administrative Museum Board, the Natural Resources Technical Advisory Board, the Parks and Recreation Board, the Jackson Hole Community Pathways Taskforce, and the START Board.
