Sherman recently reappointed two members to its Keep Sherman Beautiful Commission, but didn’t have enough applicants interested in serving to fill out the board completely.


Jessica Peters and Dusty Payne were unanimously reappointed by the Sherman City Council following a motion by Deputy Mayor Pam Howeth.


“I make a motion that we reappoint these two individuals to the Keep Sherman Beautiful (Commission) and I would also, at the same time, note that we have openings on this board,” Howeth said. “We have three additional openings, so if you know of someone who would like to help keep Sherman beautiful, please have them put their application in.”


In a document prepared for the council, city staff explained the commission promotes public interest in the improvement of the city’s environment, as well as overseeing programs in conjunction with businesses, citizens, industries and the government.


The terms of the commission’s other three members — Amanda Smith, Sarah Whitt and Zac Grantham — expire at the beginning of 2019.
