After a long hiatus, the Lake Elsinore Public Safety Advisory Commission has reconvened. City Council appointed new Public Safety Advisory Commission members during their city meeting Tuesday, Feb.11.

A lack of quorum for the past year to was to blame for the interruption of the Public Safety Commission.

In January, 12 applications were received for consideration. How ever, upon scheduling interviews several applicants withdrew their names from consideration which brought the applicants to nine, according to staff records. On Tuesday, four were chosen by council members.

The new Public Safety Commission includes Myles Ross, full term; Valerie Sund, full term; Stephen Gregory, full term; and Christine Hyland, short term.

"Iím just glad to see all these people applying. It means that weíre getting more people into our city and that are concerned about it," said Councilman Daryl Hickman.

Both Mayor Pro Tem Steve Manos and Councilman Brian Tisdale served on the sub-committee council to help choose the candidates.

long process in choosing the candidates.

"There was a very great deal of great candidates that came out. It was difficult to choose between some of the candidates," he also said.

Tisdale said they think they put together a good mix of people. They also chose a group of people that they believe will "represent the city council and the city well."

"We picked people that people will actually come to and talk to," he said. "And thatís really what we want. We want the community to really reach out to people."

The candidates chosen have experience in volunteering and are used to dealing with people in the public.

The new Public Safety Commission had the chance to introduce themselves to the council.

"Safety is one of my very, very [many] things I wanted to make sure gets done," said Hyland, also a resident of 26 years.

"I think we got the right four and look forward to their service to the city," Manos said.
