Katz, who at the time was working at Fatty’s Pizzeria; Ernie Blake, who has an interest in the same restaurant; and Michael Bertaux, who works for Vail Resorts.The new board is composed of councilmember Jim Lamb, Dave Garrett of Ski Country Resorts and Sports, civil and structural engineer Mike Khavari, Chris Kulick of Great Adventure Sports and Ed Hoerner, a retired GTE employee.The five will meet the third Tuesday of every month at 9 a.m. at the town hall.On Tuesday, they were all sworn in and held their first public hearing for the Lodgepole Bar & Grill at Grand Timber Lodge.
