For the second consecutive meeting, the Garden Grove City Council on Tuesday night postponed action on appointments to city commissions.

Those appointments will be deferred to a future, unspecified meeting.

The delay came at the request of Councilmember Kim Nguyen (District 6), who wanted more diversity in terms of seeing that all districts are represented on the commissions.

Councilmember George Brietigam (District 1) said he supported diversity but noted that “it’s hard to get people to volunteer to work for free.”

How long would Nguyen wait before consenting to the appointments? “As long as it takes,” she said.

Councilmember Joe DoVinh (District 4) said he wanted the mayor to commit to action soon and not let the matter be continued on an open-ended basis.

In the meanwhile, sitting commission members will remain in their posts.
