HURLEY – Hurley City Mayor Joseph Pinardi took his oath of office and appointed council members to serve on various committees at the city council meeting Tuesday.

Joanne Bruneau was elected to serve as mayor pro-tem and was also appointed to chair the finance committee, with Robert Lanctoe and Steve Lombardo.

Lanctoe was also appointed chair of the board of public works, with newly elected members Jay Aijala and Terry Seibel.

Appointed to the parks and recreation committee were chairman Jamey Francis, Aijala and Seibel.

Lombardo was elected chair of the police, fire and license committee along with Bruneau and Francis.

James Giuliano was selected by the council to occupy the citizen seat on the planning and zoning committee through April 2017.

The council also approved several city representatives to serve on a number of area organizations.

Lombardo will serve on the Eagle Bluff Golf Club and resident Gary Pelkola will sit on the Iron County Snowmobile Council.

Pinardi and Francis were chosen for the Gogebic-Iron Wastewater Authority, with Seibel being an alternate.

Francis suggested to the council that Aijala serve as an alternate for the Hurley Chamber of Commerce Board, and the council agreed that it would be a good idea.

Daniel Soine will continue to serve as the city's building inspector and assessor, and A. Dennis Cossi will retain his role as the city attorney.
