Emery Town Councilman Wiley Pope moved from the area, which necessitated an appointment of a new member to fill the vacancy. Jesse Allan was appointed to that position at Emery Town Council’s meeting last week. Other business to come before the council included assignments from Mayor Christiansen for each member of the council.
Newly appointed Allan was assigned planning and zoning. Council member Dalton will now be responsible for historical, CERT training and LEPC. Councilman Varian Allen will continue to serve on the Special Service District Board and beautification committee. Councilman Sundstrom will work with the fire department, animal control and maintenance.
Because Emery’s status is a town, they only have four council members and a voting mayor.
