RIPON – Mayor Elden “Red” Nutt along with his vice mayor, Garry Krebbs, came to a consensus on the various committee and task force assignments.

Most of their recommendations went accordingly at Tuesday’s Ripon City Council meeting, with Chuck Winn continuing to serve on the executive board of the San Joaquin County Council of Governments – he’ll go from vice chair to chairman come July 1 – and Nutt, rather than Winn, being appointed to the Local Agency Formation Commission.

“In making the appointments, we tried to be fair and equal,” Nutt said.
