JAMESTOWN – Two former Jamestown City Councilmembers are now serving on the Board of Public Utilities Board.

The City Council approved Mayor Eddie Sundquist’s appointments to the regulatory body on Monday.

Former Councilwoman At-Large Tamu Graham-Reinhardt and Ward VI Councilman Tom Nelson, both Democrats, were appointed.

Graham-Reinhardt announced last year she was not seeking re-election in November while Nelson lost his re-election bid to Republican, and political newcomer, Andrew Faulkner.

The two are taking the seats formerly held by the BPU Board’s Chairman Greg Rabb and member Jim Olson.

In total, the board consists of nine members, all residents of the City of Jamestown.

It is comprised of the Mayor, who is the President of the Board, the Director of Public Works; two council representatives and five community members, each appointed by the Mayor.
