Advisory commission applications up

City council appoints commissioners, confirms committee assignments

The La Grande City Council confirmed appointments to advisory commissions and councilor committee assignments Wednesday.

City Recorder Sandy Lund said she was pleased to get numerous applications for the advisory commissions vacancies. 

“I hope I don’t jinx the process, but we have been very pleased this year with the return of applications,” Lund said. 

Lund said in previous years there has been much frustration due to a lack of applications for the commissions and that some commissions have had vacancies for months.

“I really hope we’re going to see a new trend and see these applications continue to come in,” she said.

In some cases during this year’s process, the city received more applications than vacancies. City councilors voted beforehand to decide on appointees for those commissions.

Councilors also made little change to committee assignments for the year. Councilors are assigned to attend meetings as representatives of the council of certain organizations in the community, including the Union County Chamber of Commerce, Union County Economic Development Corp., Union County Safe Community Coalition and others.

Also at the meeting, the Liberty Theatre Foundation was presented grant award money. Chantell Cosner, executive director of the foundation, was presented a $15,000 check from the Oregon Community Foundation and a $1,000 award from the Northwest Farm Credit Services’ community grant programs. Cosner said restoration work on the theater will continue this year with a focus on the downtown building’s facade.

“We are on to the next phase of the exterior, which is just a tiny bite in the overall restoration of the theater,” she said. “We have been working on the canopy.”

The canopy will be a replication of the canopy on the theater in the 1920s and ‘30s. Restoration will also include putting up a new sign, also modeled after one that appeared on the theater in its prime.

Mayor Daniel Pokorney said the theater is already hosting great events.

“We look forward to all the great things happening at the Liberty Theatre,” he said.
