Officials appointed at Perth meeting; new historian named

PERTH – The town’s Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals will have the same chairmen in 2013 after they were unanimously reappointed at Thursday’s Town Board reorganizational meeting.

Planning Board Chairman Ron Cetnar was reappointed to his post. Harvey Hemstreet was appointed vice chairman.

John Baker, who was reappointed as director of the Perth Youth Commission, also was reappointed as chairman of the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Robert Lewandowski was appointed to an unexpired zoning board term vacated by May Yost.

Lewandowski’s wife, Gay, a member of the Town Board, abstained from voting on his appointment.

Yost also had been the town historian. Sylvia Zierak, president of the Perth Historical Society, was appointed to that position Thursday.

Town Board committee assignments were unchanged from 2012, town Supervisor Greg Fagan said.
