HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) – Wednesday night, the newly formed Huber Heights Military & Veterans Commission met for the first time.
Local leaders say this new commission might be one of the first municipal commissions in the area.
“There’s no secret that a significant makeup of our community involves people currently serving, veterans or immediate family of those who have or are currently serving in the military service,” said City Manager, Rob Schommer.
The board is made up of eight volunteers, with one spot open to fill.
The commission will make recommendations to city council, plan ceremonies, and act as a connector to community resources for those that need it.
The meetings are open to the public and the city says its vital for community members to get involved.
“That’s exactly what it’s designed for. To advocate for and to represent their constituents in the community,” said Schommer.”
