Sauer, Smith Tapped for LGC Spots

City Council members Eddy Sauer and Howard Smith were appointed to the Amarillo Local Government Corporation Board last night following a City Council executive session.

Sauer and Smith were both unanimously appointed by the Council to serve out the remainder of the terms of former council members Lisa Blake and Randy Burkett on the LGC. Blake and Burkett resigned last week when the new City Council took their spots at City Hall.

The City Council chose to make the appointments after convening in executive session.

Another appointment during last night's meeting came when the Council chose to appoint Eddy Sauer as the Mayor-Pro Tempore for one year.
