ITID’s New And Returning Supervisors Sworn-In For Four-Year Terms

The Indian Trail Improvement District Board of Supervisors: (L-R) Michael Johnson, Jennifer Hager, Betty Argue, Joni Martin and Keith Jordano.

Keith Jordano and Betty Argue were sworn in as Indian Trail Improvement District supervisors for new four-year terms on Wednesday, Dec. 16.

While Argue began her second term on the board, Jordano was elected in November to replace former Supervisor Tim Sayre, who chose not to seek re-election.

Under board appointments, Supervisor Jennifer Hager made a motion to keep them the same as the previous year, other than naming Jordano to boards.

Hager also made a motion to keep Argue as president, herself as vice president Supervisor Joni Martin as treasurer, Supervisor Michael Johnson as secretary and ITID Attorney Mary Viator as assistant secretary, which carried 5-0.

Argue asked if she could remain as ITID’s representative to the Western Communities Council.

Jordano asked to be appointed to the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council and the Palm Beach County League of Cities, along with Argue and Martin, who will serve on the Policies and Procedures Committee.

Martin agreed to continue attending the monthly City of Westlake meetings, while Argue agreed to attend South Florida Water Management District meetings after several other supervisors declined.

ITID Executive Director Burgess Hanson said that SFWMD meetings are important due to issues with the L-8 and M-O canals with recent breeches, as well as getting proper funding and permits.
