MANCHESTER - One of this town's longest-serving planning officials has been named to the council seat left open earlier this month when Earl A. J. "Tim" Warehime Jr. became mayor.
Charlotte B. Collett, who in July stepped down from a 15-year stint as chairwoman of the Planning and Zoning Commission, was unanimously selected during a council meeting Tuesday night to fill Warehime's seat. She was chosen from among four others: Larry Gouker, John Timberman, Douglas Myers and John Etzel Jr.
Collett, a lifelong resident and Manchester history buff, will fill the seat until 1993. She is 64.
Warehime, who faces an election in May, became mayor Dec. 3 when Elmer C. Lippy Jr. began his job as a County Commissioner.
