Oroville Mayor Jon Neal makes committee apointments

David ‘Mac’ McEleheren selected Mayor Pro Temp

OROVILLE – Oroville Mayor Jon Neal announced this year’s committee appointments at the March 6 council meeting, commenting that with two new council members it was important he got the right mix on the mostly two-person committees.

“It was kind of difficult with two people who are new to the council,” said Neal, referring to newly elected member Robert Fuchs and newly appointed member Mike Marthaller. “I needed to make sure they were not put together so we have some experience on each committee.”

Neal’s first appointment was for Mayor Pro-Tempore and he selected Councilman David McEleheren, who received full support from his fellow council members for the mayor’s choice.
