Four members of the DeKalb County Beer Board may soon be up for appointment to an established term by the county commission.
Last year the commission voted to set terms for members of the beer board. All seven members serve as appointees and the terms are staggered with the 1st, 3rd, 5th, & 7th district positions being appointed in odd years. The 2nd, 4th, & 6th district seats are filled in even years. The beer board is to re-organize (name officers) every year.
In March last year Myron Rhody in the 2nd district, Robert Rowe in the 4th district and Leonard Dickens in the 6th district were appointed. Each term is for two years effective in April. Names of each appointee were placed in nomination by the county commissioners in their districts, 2nd, 4th, and 6th and then voted on by the entire county commission.
Members of the beer board are Jim Stagi in the 1st district, Myron Rhody in the 2nd district, Edward Frazier in the 3rd district, Robert Rowe in the 4th district, Rhonda Caplinger in the 5th district, Leonard Dickens in the 6th district, and Johnny King in the 7th district.
The county commission meets next Monday night, March 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the courthouse.
