(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Common Council this week approved the mayor’s committee assignments. Shirley Poch will serve a five-year appointment on the Police and Fire Commission. Poch replaces longtime commissioner Gary Spielman who was moved to the Board of Appeals along with Steve Hannan. Spielman will complete the term of Heidi Freeby while Hannan replaces Mike Wissell. Both Freeby and Wissell were recently seated on the common council. Mike DeVitt was appointed to a three-year term on the Library Board. The Beaver Dam Administrative Committee meanwhile elected Jaclyn Shelton as the vice chair, who would helm meeting in the absence of chair Ken Anderson.
