The Crow Wing County Parks Advisory Commission is now complete.
The Crow Wing County Board on Tuesday appointed John Henke to represent District 2 and Byron Eliseuson to represent District 4. Dewes said Eliseuson, who ran against Dewes for his commissioner seat in the primary election and lost, said Eliseuson knows his stuff and would do a good job on the advisory commission.
Earlier, Terry McGaughey was appointed to represent District 3, Greg Smith was appointed to represent District 1 and Gloria Perpich will represent District 5.
The commission will meet monthly and will consist of 12 members, including County Board Chair John Ferrari and a member of the Crow Wing County Land Advisory Committee.
Five at-large residents previously were selected to sit on the commission. They are Don Hickman, who is a conservation advocate; Todd Holman, Baxter city planner; Roger Landers, a trail advocate; Steve Masimore, a resort representative; and Mary Claire Ryan, a park and recreation professional.
