Heidi Hein­rich was ap­pointed as the Santa Clarita rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the Greater Los An­ge­les County Vec­tor Con­trol District board of trus­tees. She will be re­spon­si­ble for du­ties such as set­ting pol­icy, es­tab­lish­ing the bud­get and ap­prov­ing ex­pen­di­tures and re­tain­ing le­gal coun­sel.

Un­der the Plan­ning Com­mis­sion, Eich­man and Ostrum re­turn for an­other term but Mas­nada will re­place Tim Burkhart, Six Flags Magic Moun­tain’s vice pres­i­dent of main­te­nance and con­struc­tion and former Cas­taic Lake Wa­ter Agency board mem­ber. He served on the Plan­ning Com­mis­sion for two decades.

“(Tim Burkhart) has served this city very, very well over the years as a plan­ning com­mis­sioner, and I think we would be re­miss if we didn’t at least ac­knowl­edge the phe­nom­e­nal work that Mr. Burkhart has pro­vided the city,” Coun­cil­man Bob Kel­lar said.

The new ap­pointees are ex­pected to be­gin serv­ing at the year’s first meet­ing of each com­mis­sion and board. Each would serve un­til their terms end Dec. 31, 2022, or when a re­place­ment is ap­pointed, ac­cord­ing to the city.
