In other action at the meeting, Board incumbents Rick Miniscalco and John Schilling as well as newcomers Suzan Leonard and Carolyn Murphy were sworn-in for four year terms. They were all winners in the election last month. So was incumbent Stephen Hladik. He was unable to attend the reorganization meeting but was sworn-in last week.
