DYER | The Town Council approved the appointment of a new Park Board member during a special meeting held before this month's study session.
Maria Gertler, a Republican, replaces fellow Republican Theresa Scherzinger on the board. Scherzinger had tendered her resignation, but agreed to continue serving on the board until a replacement could be found.
Scherzinger served on the board during its series of milestones over the past few years. During her tenure the board revamped Pheasant Hills Park and built ballfields on the north side of Central Park.
