[ARCHIVED] Mayor Emily Styron and Town Council announce 2021 board/commission/committee appointments


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

When making appointments, one of Mayor Emily Styron’s priorities was to include more women and add more diversity to these Town roles. Through the recently formed Use of Force Review Board, the Zionsville Community Enrichment Grant Committee and the Pedestrian Mobility Advisory Committee, we have the most diverse group of citizens participating in municipal government policy and programs. “We recognize that diversity within our town’s boards, commissions and committees is critical to ensure Town policies and programs serve people of every race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion and ability,” Mayor Emily Styron said.

All appointments are for one-year terms with the exception of: 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 Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Library Board (four-year term), the Board of Zoning Appeals (four-year term) and the Board of Police Commissioners (three-year term after initial term).
