By a 6-2 vote, the board appointed former board member Sonya Duncan to a vacant seat on the board.
This seat was initially set to be filled by Katherine Miller, who was elected to the board in November. After moving outside the district, Miller was not sworn in as a member and her seat was declared vacant.
Jeffrey Detz, chief financial officer of the Columbia-based Kleen-Rite Corp., also submitted a letter of interest. In his interview with the board he highlighted his business and volunteer experience. Detz received votes from board members Jason Price and Ryan Sexton. Board members Charles Leader, Matthew Wardecker, Sandy Duncan, Devon Fisher, Lauren VonStetten and Kathleen Hohenadel voted for Duncan.
