The Hemet City Council reorganized itself at the Tuesday, Dec. 14, meeting by appointing council member Malcolm Lilienthal as the newest mayor and council member Karlee Meyer as mayor pro tem for 2022 and by swearing in new council member Joe Males.
Lilienthal and Meyer took over the leadership of that night’s lengthy council meeting, agreeing to the tentative selection of a firm to upgrade the city’s entire telephone system and continuing its investment strategies with Public Trust Advisors for the city’s monies. They also heard a report of an amendment to the zoning code to change the second story design criteria on single family homes.
These discussions followed 20 requested consent items, proclamations and public comments. It was near midnight before the meeting adjourned.
