The Northshore Fire Department has appointed a new member to its Board of Fire Commissioners.  Kenmore resident, Suzanne Greathouse, was selected to fill the vacant Position No. 2 at the December 4th meeting of the Board of Fire Commissioners.

Commissioner Greathouse brings with her an extensive background in business and community service.  She was appointed by unanimous vote from Commissioners Don Ellis, Rick Verlinda, Ron Gehrke and Chairman, Dave Maehren. Commissioner Greathouse will be sworn in at the December 18th Board meeting and has already begun an orientation process with other commissioners and staff members.
