The City Council unanimously approved the appointment of Beachmont resident Deborah Santiano-McHatton to the Conservation Commission. She has served on numerous committees over the years and has been a fighter against the airplane noise for years, cleaner beaches and a cleaner community.
“She’s a committed public servant,” said Councillor Dan Rizzo. “She’s been there for the neighborhood and for the city. It’s really about we’re recognizing her efforts and bringing her on in a formal capacity.”
Santiano-McHatton, a self-described community activist, said she’d like to be on the commission just to preserve our community and make sure the waterways are protected.
The term will be for three-years.
