(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Common Council Monday night approved citizen appointments to a pair of committees. Ken Serchen is stepping down from the city’s Police and Fire Commission. John Oathout has been selected to fill the PFC vacancy. As a result, Oathout is stepping down from the city’s Community Development Committee, which has been tasked recently with handling downtown revitalization efforts. Oathout, who is with American Bank, has had to abstain from several votes related to the downtown because of the bank’s downtown branch. Businessman Rich Zieman was approved to sit on the CDC.
