Mayor Kristen Brown has appointed a fifth member to the Columbus Board of Works and Public Safety.
Caleb Tennis, the president of the airport’s Board of Aviation Commissioners and a member of the city’s Technology Advisory Committee, is the newest member of the board.
Tennis served in his new capacity for the first time Tuesday.
He fills a spot that has been vacant since December 2013, when Susan Fye resigned from the board.
The board was expanded from three to five members last year after the city council amended an ordinance to allow the mayor to appoint four city voters to the board.
Brown then appointed Bob Crider and Bob Sullivan in August 2013. Jayne Farber is also a member of the board of works.
The Board of Public Works and Safety is the city’s contracting agency. Its responsibilities include approval of financial disbursements by the clerk-treasurer’s office and oversight of transportation, sanitation and public safety.
