DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Chris Dahlberg, the recently re-elected commissioner representing St. Louis County’s Third District, has been chosen by his fellow commissioners to serve as Chair of the County Board for 2013. Fourth District Commissioner Mike Forsman will serve as Vice-Chair. Both were elected by unanimous votes at today’s annual meeting of the County Board.
Following the vote, Dahlberg assigned commissioners to chair the following standing committees of the Board:
Health and Human Services – Pete Stauber
Environment and Natural Resources – Keith Nelson
Public Works and Transportation – Mike Forsman
Finance and Budget – Steve Raukar
Central Management and Intergovernmental – Frank Jewell
Public Safety and Corrections – Steve O’Neil
Commissioners also approved their meeting schedule for 2013. New this year, and consistent with the Board’s ongoing efforts to provide easier access to meetings for all citizens of St. Louis County, four Board Meetings that traditionally would have been held at the Duluth Courthouse, will instead be held at locations in the Fifth District. Those meetings include February 12 at the Hermantown City Hall, April 9 at the Canosia Town Hall, July 9 at the Rice Lake Town Hall, and October 8 at the Hermantown City Hall.
