The first set of Town Council meetings this year served not just as a time to make citizen appointments to the town advisory boards and commissions, but for council members to receive their own assignments.
During the council’s organizational meeting earlier this week, Mayor Kelly Burk was appointed as the council representative to the Loudoun County Economic Development Commission, the Northern Virginia Regional Commission, the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority Advisory Committee, Virginia Municipal League’s Human Development and Education Committee, and as one of two council representatives, along with Vice Mayor Marty Martinez, on the joint town and county Annexation Area Development Policy Committee. Burk will also serve as the council representative on several town boards and commissions: the Environmental Advisory Commission, the Public Art Commission and the Standing Residential Traffic Committee.
Martinez will be the council’s representative on VML’s General Laws Committee, the Board of Architectural Review, the Diversity Commission, and the Parks and Recreation Commission.
Councilman Neil Steinberg was tapped as the council representative for the Airport Commission, the Technology and Communications Commission, the Tree Commission, and VML’s Environmental Quality Committee.
Councilman Josh Thiel will represent the council on the town’s Economic Development Commission, and on VML’s Community and Economic Development and Transportation committees.
Councilman Tom Dunn will serve as the council representative to the town Planning Commission.
Councilman Ron Campbell will represent the council on the Thomas Balch Library Commission and VML’s Finance Committee.
Finally, Councilwoman Suzanne Fox will continue to serve as the council representative on NVTA’s Planning Coordination Advisory Committee.
