Clayton Councilman Jason Thompson makes his case for delaying appointments to the Planning Board.

From staff reports

CLAYTON — The Town Council on Jan. 3 made appointments to several advisory boards. But it delayed action on staff recommendations for six appointments to the Planning Board.

Councilman Jason Thompson said he wanted time to review staff recommendations and other applicants for the six Planning Board seats. “We had an unprecedented number of applicants for Planning Board,” he said. “I’d like to review their applications, resumes and qualifications and really have some more time to digest those.”

New council member Andria Archer, a former Planning Board chairwoman, supported Thompson’s call for more time. “I just wanted to agree with that,” she said.

So did new council member Porter Casey. “I think that makes sense,” he said,

The council did make the following appointments:

Board of Adjustment — Rebecca Berry, John Saluppo, Richard Wiggins and Thomas Antoine.

Parks & Recreation — Daniel Santarsiero, Mark Turnball, Jordan Sims, Karen Phinazee and Mark Morgan.

Library Board — Katie Turnbull, Amber Revels Stocks and Paul Taperek.

Public Art — Dane Martin, Sara Perricone and Carrole Dayton.

Staff had recommended the following for the Planning Board: Jodie Dupree, Ronald Williams, James Moore, Kevin Lee, Ethan Bennett and James Lipscomb.
