Belmont City Council chose to appoint three new Parks and Recreation commissioners Tuesday night, passing over two long-time incumbents for the three open seats.
Judi King and Mike Davis, who have served on the commission on and off for over 20 years each, did not receive enough votes from the five-member city council to be reappointed for another two-year term.
The three open seats were filled by newcomers Tim Wong, Richard Sullivan and Thaddeus Block. Each will serve a two-year term.
Two youth Parks and Recreation commissioners, Alex Bartee and Pantea Zakeri were reappointed. Each will serve a one-year term.
The voting took place at about 11:00 p.m. after a lengthy meeting that was dominated by discussions of council protocol and benefits.
Kristin Mercer was reappointed to the Planning Commission; Rick Frautschi and Mark Herbach were newly appointed. Each will serve a three-year term.
The Finance Commission had two open seats and one vacant seat. The seats were filled by Lynnel Callagay, who was reappointed, and newcomers Tracy Patel and Thomas McCune. Finance commissioners serve three-year terms.
One new member, Karl Mittelstadt, was appointed to the Tree Board.
