ECC P and Z board loses another member

After losing three members over the past two months, the East Carbon City Planning and Zoning board has now lost another board member.

Sherry Shaff, who served as a board member for the past two years, resigned from her position on the Planning and Zoning board citing the blame placed upon the board for the delay with the sale of properties in the city.

With a resignation, she now joins former chairperson Joyce Caviness and board members Carolyn Abeyta and Helen Garr as those who have left their positions on the Planning and Zoning board.

"I felt we got the blame for everything," Shaff said. "I think we (the board) had done what we were supposed to do with the properties."

Shaff, a lifelong resident of East Carbon, said she enjoyed her time serving on the board, especially working with other board members.

"I enjoyed being around the other board members, helping serve the community," she said. "It was an interesting experience."

Despite resigning from the Planning and Zoning board, Shaff should be keeping busy helping the city out in another capacity by working on the East Carbon newsletter.

"It's a lot of work, but I really enjoy working on it," she said.

Orlando LaFontaine, East Carbon City mayor, said he is still working on naming the people to the positions on the board but is confident that the vacancies will be filled by the end of the month.

While the sale of city properties may have been a point of conflict between the city council and the Planning and Zoning board, Shaff is hopeful that both entities will develop a better working relationship that benefits the city and the citizens.

"I hope they can come together to help promote and get the city back on its feet," she said. "The city can work together on this."
