Former Manassas Park City Councilman William "Bill" Treuting is now a member of the city's planning commission, an advisory body to city council.
An official welcome for Treuting is on the planning commission's agenda for this evening.
The six-member commission is comprised of volunteers from the community who serve four-year terms.
Treuting's joining the body after he lost his re-election bid in the November City Council election.
Treuting had served on the city's governing body since 1997.
Contender Jeanette Rishell won the most votes during the election, scoring one of the three seats up for grabs. Councilmen Brian Polk and Keith Miller were re-elected to council.
In addition to welcoming Treuting, the planning commission will also hold elections for president and vice president of the body, according to the commisson's agenda.
The planning commission meets at 7 p.m. on first Monday of each month in the governing body chambers.
