The Dell Rapids Planning and Zoning Board will have a new member after the Dell Rapids City Council accepted the resignation of board member Paul Zweifel on Monday, February 8th during the council’s regular meeting.
Dell Rapids City Mayor Tom Earley brought an appointment to fill the open spot on the board to the council. Mayor Earley’s appointment is former Dell Rapids Superintendent Tom Ludens.
“Tom certainly has experience with dealing with the public over his years of school superintendent. I think he’ll bring another element of value to planning and zoning. I think it’s important that we do what we can to make sure that it’s a vibrant board, and it has the resources to do the things they need to be doing,” said Mayor Earley.
Ludens commented, “I’ve enjoyed living here for almost 22 years, and I have nothing but positives about Dell Rapids. Thanks for your appointment.”
