Members of the Plymouth City Commission a welcomed one new member last month and said good-bye to another.
The commission welcomed Anthony Sebastian as a new member and accepted the resignation of five-year Commissioner Dan Dalton during the regular July 16 meeting.
Sebastian, the newest member of the commission, is a 26-year resident of Old Village. Sebastian is the owner of ATS Packaging LLC in the city. He accepted his new appointment during the July 16 meeting of the board. He will fill the unexpired term of Mike Wright who resigned in June. His term will expire Dec. 31, 2020.
Sebastian is a past president of the Old Village Association.
According to Mayor Pro Tem Colleen Pobur, three candidates were interviewed for the vacancy on the commission. She said that Sebastian’s involvement with the community and knowledge of Old Village was a plus for the commission.
Dalton said the growing workload in his law practice as one of the reasons for his resignation. His term will have to be filled by the commissioners within 30 days, as dictated by the city charter. Pobur said the commissioners will attempt to fill Dalton’s vacated seat by the first meeting in August.
