New set of city commissioners

A new set of city commissioners will be advising the South Lake Tahoe City Council on issues ranging from the Lake Tahoe Airport to affirmative action and city planning.

Applicants had to meet residency requirements, submit applications for the positions and then be appointed by the City Council. Each appointee serves a two-year term.

“They serve as an advisory board to the City Council,” said Sue Schlerf, assistant city manager. “Each commission must provide an annual report saying what they’ve done and what they plan on doing in the future.”

Beyond advisory board functions, members of the commissions are responsible for a set list of duties as diverse as reviewing and monitoring the city’s affirmative action plan, establishing policies for airport advertising and promotion, and raising awareness in the arts.

For some, serving on a commission is just a logical extension of community involvement.

“I’ve been active in the arts here for a couple of years. I felt it was important to continue working to see that public art is a part of our community,” said Greta Hambsch, who will be serving on the arts commission. “The city’s arts commission serves an important role in recognizing that art is a part of our lives and culture.”
