RIO VISTA — City Council members will interview and appoint two at-large planning commissioners Tuesday from a field of eight candidates.

The positions became available after the terms of Anne Bowcutt and Rolf Sabye expired. The new term will expire in January 2018. The two appointments will join David Barnes, Jan Vick, Clinton Scholting, Mary Ellen Lamothe and Brent Cohn on the Planning Commission.

Those being interviewed, in order, are:

  • Ralph Aguilar, retired, a one-year Rio Vista resident.
  • Bob Armstrong, retired, seven-month resident.
  • Beverly Bellows, retired, three-year resident.
  • John Fahretti, retired, three-year resident.
  • Janis Hunter, retired, 13-year resident.
  • Ronald Kott, retired, six-year resident.
  • Edwin Okamura, a former marketing executive working to become a mortgage consultant, 10-year resident.
  • Rolf Sabye, retired, nine-year resident, looking to keep his seat on the Planning Commission.

Applications can be viewed by reading the City Council attachment documents for the corresponding agenda item at http://riovistacity.com/council-current-agenda.

The council will also review, discuss and appoint council members to various local and regional boards, commissions and committees such as the Association of Bay Area Governments, the Highway 12 Association, the Solano Economic Development Corp. board and the Solano Transportation Authority.

The regular session begins at 6 p.m. at One Main Street. For more information, call 374-6451.

    Be sure to ask each one about Agenda 21 and its implementation arm, ICLEI. If they are for it, or if they don't know about it, then send them on their way. Rio Vista, you need people who live in reality and will fight the centralization scourge. You think there's no threat? Google "Plan Bay Area" and "One Bay Area" to begin your education.
