There was a slight shakeup at the Del Norte County Local Agency Formation Commission on Monday.

The commissioners voted on a new chair and vice chair for the committee, which is made up of two County Board Supervisors, two City Council members and one citizen.

Council member Mike Scavuzzo was voted in as the LAFCO Chairman with Don Micheletti as his Vice Chairman.

In addition to electing new chairs, the commission relayed the resignation of the altermate public member Howard Block, who quit his role due to health issues.

The commission will place an announcement in The Daily Triplicate in the next few weeks in order to garner interest in the open position.

Applicants will then be reveiwed by commissioners Scavuzzo, Micheletti and Leslie McNamer, who formed an ad hoc committee specifically for this task.

The commission also adopted the minutes from their previous meeting.
