It’s been over four years since the South Padre Island Board of Ethics (BOE) has held a meeting. But, after such a long hiatus, the board met Monday to take care of several housekeeping matters, including a decision to create a regular meeting schedule.
The meeting began with the election of a chair and vice chair. Local attorney Christiana Dijkman nominated herself for the position of chairperson. The nomination was unanimously approved. Next, Chuck Costanza, the only current member who served during the BOE’s last meeting in February 2014, was selected as vice chair.
