The Richmond Hill Planning and Zoning Commission has a new member after the City Council unanimously approved Tuesday appointing Jonathan Goodman.
Goodman was sworn in during the council’s regular meeting at City Hall and will begin his duties immediately, Zoning Administrator Nancy Frye said Friday.
“I look forward to serving the city and doing what’s right for our community,” Goodman told the council Tuesday.
Goodman, a sales and project manager for Green South Energy Solutions in Savannah, will fill a spot that has been vacant for nearly four months since previous commission member Brian Baraniak stepped down. Frye said there were no issues or hard feelings with his departure.
Richmond Hill Mayor Harold Fowler said Thursday he believes Goodman should be a good fit for the commission.
“He gives us a little different perspective on some things,” Fowler said. “Just looking at his resume and meeting him the other night, I think he’ll do an excellent job.”
Also at the meeting:
• The council held a closed session to discuss personnel matters, but no action was taken.
• The council denied a request from Stephen Tremble to park the cab of a commercial tractor trailer vehicle at his residence on Rushing Street.
• The council approved the on-premises sales and consumption of beer, wine and liquor alcoholic beverage license from Antonio McCumber, manager of the Limelight Bar and Grill on Ford Avenue, formerly Glazer’s Pub.
