The City is in receipt of a letter from the Victor Hansen, President of the District, advising us that the Board appointed Susan Anderson to serve out the remainder of Ms. Shaw’s term. As the supervising authority for this District, the City Council should now confirm the appointment of Ms. Anderson to the Board.
