Dickson County Mayor Bob Rial has been appointed to the state’s Underground Storage Tanks and Solid Waste Disposal Control Board.

Gov. Bill Lee announced Sept. 30 more than 100 appointees, including Rial, to state boards and commissions.

“I am pleased to appoint these individuals and appreciate their willingness to serve our state,” Lee said in the announcement. “The success of our state depends on engaged citizens and we look forward to working together.”

The UST board meets at least four times a year, according to the Department of Environment & Conservation website. The primary functions of the board are to publicize rules, interpret regulations and hear appeals of permitting and enforcement actions.

Rial was named the county government representative on the UST board.
