In boxing terms, the city’s volunteer public commissions are down but not out.

Vice Mayor Mark DiNunzio, Councilwoman Barbara Litrell, Councilman Dan McIlroy and Councilwoman Jessica Williamson, left to right, voted May 29 to end three city commissions and a committee.During a special council meeting May 29, the council voted 4-3 to eliminate the city’s existing resident commissions. Council members Dan McIlroy, Jessica Williamson, Barbara Litrell and Vice Mayor Mark DiNunzio voted for the elimination. However, the plan now is to regroup and focus on creating short-term committees, which are more cost-effective than the existing commissions.

“I’m confident a number of current commission members will want to stay on,” Sedona City Manager Tim Ernster said. “But I’m sure some will be upset and therefor won’t want to participate.”

With a shorter required commitment, Ernster said this will allow for a greater number of residents to become involved in a variety of topics.
