ST. CHARLES – Mayor Ray Rogina has announced the two aldermen and the two St. Charles residents nominated to serve on the city’s newly formed liquor commission.
Council members include 2nd Ward Alderman Rita Anne Payleitner and 5th Ward Alderman Maureen Lewis. The two city residents include Charles A. Amenta II, who has lived in St. Charles for six years, and Robert Gehm, who has lived in St. Charles for 23 years, according to a news release from the city of St. Charles.
Rogina will continue to serve as liquor commissioner, and the other members of the commission will serve as advisory members. The City Council approved the new liquor commission, and members will review applications for liquor licenses and conduct disciplinary hearings.
Amenta is a financial representative at Northwestern Mutual and serves on the Reneaux Manor Homeowners Association Board, the release stated. Gehm has more than 30 years of business experience in accounting, finance and project management, and also has volunteered with several local organizations, according to the release.
“The creation of the Local Liquor Control Commission puts a solid process in place to regulate liquor-related issues in St. Charles,” Rogina said in the news release. “Both resident nominees will bring useful talents to the commission, and I am grateful to them for agreeing to invest their time and effort to further improve our community.”
The full City Council still needs to approve the nominations, which are slated to be reviewed at the July 15 meeting, according to the release.
