WHITE LAKE — The Elizabethtown-White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce recognized the town of White Lake as the Chamber Member of the Year for 2015 during the town’s regular meeting on Monday.
Dawn Maynard, executive director of the Chamber, presented the town’s Board of Commissioners with the award, saying that it was the first time the town of White Lake had ever been chosen as the Chamber Member of the Year.
According to Maynard, the award will be presented again at the Chamber’s annual banquet in June at Lu Mil Vineyard.
Also on Monday, White Lake Police Chief Bruce Smith requested the board reclassify Sgt. Mike Salmon from his sergeant position to lieutenant. Smith said the change would better reflect Salmon’s current duties with the department. He said the reclassification would require no salary change. The board approved the request.
The board also held two public hearings, the first for requests of a rezoning along Lennondale and White Lake drives from permanent residential to recreational residential; the second for a special use permit on White Lake Drive for the construction of six duplex facilities that would house 12 units.
Nobody spoke against the requests and they were each approved by the board.
The next meeting of the White lake Board of Commissioners will be March 29 at 6 p.m.
