    “I’m very glad that Councilor Wismer asked us to do this, because it’s been a number of years, and I think we periodically need to check in and see what sort of adjustments they think need to be made,” Carlsten said. “So I’m hoping the recommendations made tonight will make it a little bit easier and more rewarding to serve on our boards and commissions.”
