He was the lone applicant for both positions.After Councilman Rick Cook moved to appoint Katz to the two boards, Vice Mayor Laura Flores Espinosa asked that Katz tell the council about himself.
Katz said he is a builder with 30 years experience in the Ventura County area.After moving to Santa Paula Katz said “I love it so much here that when I saw the advertisements for the building appeals board and recreation commission I wanted to volunteer my services.”Experience with raising four children has given him an appreciation of recreational issues that are overseen by the Recreation Commission, said Katz, and his construction background has provided him with valuable experience that would be put to good use on the Appeals Board.“I would like to congratulate Mr. Katz,” on his dual appointments, said Espinosa, “and thank him for applying to serve on two community boards. . thank you very much.”Other council members also voiced their appreciation that Katz has jumped right into community involvement.Anne Katz works for the United Water Conservation District headquarters in Santa Paula and is active with the Santa Paula Rotary Club.
