Council Pres. Brown Tapped for Commission Post; Mayor Blad Seeks Applications for Council Seat


Last week, Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter officially selected Pocatello City Council President Steve Brown to fill an open Bannock County Commissioner seat.

“I’ve loved my time with the City of Pocatello and I will miss it,” said Brown. “I’ve loved working with my fellow Council members, City staff, and the people of Pocatello. There’s a great satisfaction in serving people and I look forward to the next chapter with Bannock County.”

“Steve has been a great asset to the City,” said Mayor Brian Blad, “and he’s worked hard to help Pocatello progress. I have no doubt he’ll continue his efforts as our newest County Commissioner and look forward to working with him in his new position.”

With Brown’s appointment to the commission, his seat is now vacant on the Pocatello City Council.
