The Barnes County Commission met Tuesday and among other things, appointed David Vareberg to the Barnes County Weed Board and Andre DeLorme to the Barnes County Park Board.

About 10 months ago DeLorme, a VCSU professor, was a possible pick for the Barnes County Water Resource District Board, and was supported by Commissioner Phil Leitner.

Commissioner Cindy Schwehr said she supported DeLorme for the park board.
“I really like him,” she said. “He’s passionate about that river... I like him, I’ve worked with some of the kids he teaches, they like him, he’s just a likable guy.”
