After taking their seats, both Fuhrman and Denver had little to say, other than to give thanks to the voters, and that they were ready to serve.

Towards the end of the meeting, during councilmember comments, Fuhrman suggested the council appoint Mann as chair of the Veterans Committee. Mann had already left the meeting by that time. Darcy Kuenzi noted that because its an ad hoc committee, that there may be difficulty appointing a non-councilmember to that committee.


  1. Glad to see Tom Fuhrman in office...
