The Shelton City Commission has a new look as Gary Cronce was sworn in as Mayor and Mike Olsen was sworn in as Commissioner of Finance and Accounting. Shelton Municipal Judge George Steele gave both new Commissioners the oath of office Tuesday night. After taking the oath, new Mayor Cronce made a statement thanking John Tarrant and Mike Byrne for their work on the Commission. Cronce then recognized City staff and also thanked the citizens. The new Mayor went on to talk about the future challenges facing the City including finances, paving streets, making neighborhoods safer, and making the City business friendly.
Commissioner Olsen was then appointed to represent the City on the Mason Transit Board of Directors. Appointments to other boards and committees will be discussed during a retreat scheduled for Friday morning at the Public Safety Building.
