Two commissions for Westminster will be seeking new appointees in the upcoming future.
The Westminster City Council reconvened April 24, approving a resolution to reestablishe the Westminster Youth Committee and Commission on Aging during the regular city council meeting.
The two commissions were abolished last year due to budget issues for the city. Since the commissions are reinstated, the council will have to appoint members back to the commission.
The council also participated in two presentations during the meeting.
The first presentation was a proclamation declaring May 1-7 “Wildfire Awareness Week” for the city.
The hope of the proclamation is to raise awareness of the dangers and the impact local wildfires in the area have on the residents, operations and businesses of the city.
The second presentation honored 10 students from Blessed Sacrament Catholic School for their participation and achievements in the Annual Diocesan Academic Decathlon. Nine students who attended the meeting were presented with certificates acknowledging their accomplishments.
Members of city council appreciated the efforts of the students and showed support for them. Councilwoman Margie Rice said she had an opportunity firsthand to experience the school during a tour of the campus. She commended the school officials present at the meeting for their dedication to the students of the school.
“The program you have there is outstanding and your students are, too,” she said during the meeting.
The city council will reconvene on May 8.
