Town Council and Mayor Styron announce 2020 board/commission/committee appointments

January 16, 2019

Submitted: Amanda Vela, Director of Communications & Community Relations, Town of Zionsville, (317) 873-1585

The Zionsville Town Council has approved and announced 19 new appointments to Town of Zionsville boards/commissions/committees and Mayor Styron has announced 10 new appointments. These individuals give their time and expertise for the benefit of the community.

When making appointments, one of Mayor Styron’s priorities was to include more women in these Town roles. “Eighty-percent of my appointees are women,” Styron said. “I noticed that across the board, women are not equally represented in our various leadership roles. Through the 10 mayoral appointments up for review in 2020, I am glad I can help make this shift to ensure local government is a reflection of the talents and diversity of our residents.”

All appointments are for one-year terms with the exception of the Park Board (four-year term for Town Council appointments; one-year term for Mayoral appointments), the Park and Road Impact Fee Review Board (five-year term), the Plan Commission (four-year term), the Board of Zoning Appeals (four-year term) and the Board of Police Commissioners (three-year term after initial term).
