    It was obvious that Tuesday night’s Decatur City Council meeting was the year’s finale, with several year-end matters handled. Among them were a group of reappointments.
    Ron Storey, Rex Hinsky and Max Miller were given new one-year terms on the city’s redevelopment commission by Mayor John Schultz. North Adams board member Ben Faurote represents that board on the commission, but is a non-voting member.
    Dave Haggard was given a new four-year term on the Board of Zoning Appeals, by the mayor.
