A Huber Heights City Council member has been appointed to serve on a national council.

Councilman Richard Shaw was appointed to the National League of Cities’ Small Cities Council on Friday.

As a member of the Small Cities Council, Shaw will help identify common trends across municipalities and develop policy options and responses to those trends or issues.

“The small cities, villages and townships in the Dayton region share many of the same struggles as other communities throughout the country,” Shaw said. “I will be working to find creative solutions to the challenges affecting small cities.”

Shaw is one of five elected Ohio officials to serve on the Small Cities Council, according to a release sent out by the city.
