In a noteworthy move, the Bedminster Land Use Board appointed Carol Guttschall as the new Chairperson and Jeffrey Leonard as the Vice Chair for the year 2024.

The meeting commenced with the nomination and appointment of Carol Guttschall as Chairperson for the next year, a motion that passed unanimously. Following this, Jeffrey Leonard was nominated and appointed as Vice Chair, also receiving unanimous support from the board members.
Subsequent to the leadership appointments, the board conducted its annual administrative tasks, including the approval of minutes from the December 7th meeting, with board member Kathy Christie abstaining due to her absence from the said meeting.
