The Frederick News Post reports that during today’s terminal meeting of the Frederick County Commissioners (the County moves to Charter government following its upcoming transition), a procedural move was approved to appoint sitting County Commission President Blaine Young to a citizen seat on the County’s Planning Commission.
From coverage in the Frederick News-Post (limited free views available):
Young has acted as a commissioners liaison to the planning commission, with his service expected to end when he leaves office Dec. 1. However, during his final meeting as commissioners president, Young suddenly resigned his post on the planning commission. Seconds later, Commissioner Paul Smith moved to reappoint Young to the commission seat he had just vacated. For his new five-year term as a planning official, Young would be serving as a citizen rather than as a county commissioner, Smith said.
Three commissioners approved the decision, with Young stepping down from the board during the vote.
