BROOKE COUNTY, W.Va. (WTRF) Tuesday was the first Brooke County Commission meeting of the year and the first for new commissioner Thomas Diserio.

On the agenda were a number of items to take care of for the new year including appointing a President and Pro-Tem along with various boards.

Commissioner Diserio was appointed as President Pro-Tem and to the boards of Health, Extension Service, Parks and Recreation, and the Museum.

He says sitting down with his fellow commissioners and discussing the needs for the county was a great way to start the new year.
