Carmel City Council appoints board members, commissioners


The Carmel City Council made several appointments to boards and commissions at its Jan. 18 meeting.



There was an attempt to appoint City Councilor Jeff Worrell to the Carmel Redevelopment Commission — a role in which he previously served before being elected — but city code at that time prohibited any member of the council from serving on the CRC. Previously, the council voted to remove that rule but it had not been signed by councilors and gone into effect yet, so it that appointment was tabled until the next council meeting, when Worrell will presumably be appointed.

Dave Bowers, vice president of the CRC, was appointed for another term. Bowers serves as senior vice president for business banking at Centier Bank.

Bruce Kimball, newly elected member of the Carmel City Council, has been selected as the council’s representative on the Carmel Plan Commission.

Deborah Schmitz, realtor and associate broker for Berkshire Hathaway in HomeServices, was appointed to the Carmel City Center Community Development Corporation, commonly known as the 4CDC.

James Hawkins, a current member of the Carmel Board of Zoning Appeals, was selected to continue in that capacity. He serves as chief appraisal officer and vice president for the real estate services group at Old National Bank.
