Fayetteville’s City Council began its 2021 regular meetings on Jan. 7 by unanimously confirming appointments to several local boards and authorities. City Clerk Anne Barksdale said the city solicited applications last November and December for 10 slots on five boards. Two members of the Downtown Development Authority, Jamie Wyatt and Sarah Murphy, were reappointed for new terms; Brandon Sherman was chosen to replace Addison Lester. Due to administrative changes, the Main Street Tourism Association will now be under the guidance of the DDA, whose board members will serve as Main Street’s board as well.

In addition, Sarah Murphy, David Hilderbrandt and Toby Spencer were reappointed to Planning and Zoning Commission posts 1, 3 and 5, respectively. Nancy Musselwhite will replace Kelly Brown on the Public Facilities Authority, and Regina Daigre was named to the Library Board. On the Ethics Board, Desmona Fletcher was reappointed to a new two-year term and Abraham Morrall was chosen to replace Jim Poff.
