New Council Leadership

Each January, the Council elects the leadership for that calendar year. At the January 8 Council meeting, David Harding was elected as the 2019 Council Chair and Kay Van Buren as the 2019 Council Vice Chair.

Mr. Harding spoke later on behalf of the new leadership team, "We are grateful for the confidence placed in us by our colleagues, and for the privilege of serving the community in this capacity. We are currently working as a Council to set a course for this year and look forward to working with the Administration to accomplish great things for our beloved community."


Gratitude was offered from all to the outgoing 2018 Council leadership - Chair Gary Winterton and Vice Chair David Harding. Council Executive Director Cliff Strachan presented both with gifts as both a thank you and a remembrance of their service. Mr. Winterton expressed his gratitude for the opportunity he has had to serve, to work with and get to know each Councilor.


The Council also serves as the board of the Redevelopment Agency of Provo (RDA). Dave Knecht was elected to serve again as the RDA Chair and George Handley was elected RDA Vice Chair. George Stewart had been the 2018 RDA Vice Chair.
