  • Ghent P&Z may drop to five members

    Zoning administrator Jack Duncan was officially named a member of the Ghent Planning and Zoning Commission on Thursday, Sept. 6.

    Duncan replaces Rusty Whisman, who resigned as chairman of the commission in May. Because the city council did not appoint a replacement within the state-mandated 60 days since Whisman’s resignation, the task fell to the P&Z, which voted unanimously to appoint Duncan.

    Duncan was appointed in the same manor to serve as zoning administrator in July.
