Paris city councilman Matt Frierson was named the council’s liaison to the Paris Economic Development Corporation on Monday night.
He replaces John Wright, who was the liaison for 2011-2012.
In all, committee liaisons were chosen for 13 committees. Their role is primarily as an observer so they can provide background to the council when a committee issue comes before the council.
The appointments are the mayor’s to make, but Mayor AJ Hashmi asked for each council member to volunteer for committee berths that he or she desired.
The process resulted in the following liaison appointments:
ArkTex Council of Governments — Mayor AJ Hashmi, Dr. Richard Grossnickle and Cleonne Drake.
Visitors and Convention Center – Sue Lancaster
Airport Advisory Board – Dr. Richard Grossnickle
Paris/Lamar County Health Board – Dr. AJ Hashmi
Band Committee – Cleonne Drake
Historic Preservation Commission – Matt Frierson
Buildings & Standards Commission – John Wright and Sue Lancaster
Library – Dr. Richard Grossnickle
Traffic Committee – Aaron Jenkins
Zoning Board of Adjustment – Sue Lancaster
Main Street Advisory Board – Cleonne Drake
Planning & Zoning – Sue Lancaster
