County commissioners selected Cheryl Grieb as chairwoman of the Osceola Board of County Commissioners for the upcoming year on Monday, effective immediately.

Grieb represents Osceola County district 4, which includes portions of the cities of Kissimmee and St. Cloud.

First elected to County office in 2014, Grieb has served on numerous boards, including her current appointment as Osceola County representative and Chairwoman of MetroPlan.

“It is an honor to be selected to lead this Board for the coming year,” said Grieb.  “And while I know as a community we face many challenges, by working together we can continue to move Osceola County in the right direction.”

During the same meeting, Viviana Janer was selected vice chairwoman.

“It is an honor to be elected by my fellow Commissioners as Vice Chairwoman once again,” said Janer “I look forward to working with Chairwoman Grieb and our Board to keep Osceola on the path to prosperity.”

As outgoing Commission Chairman, District 5 Commissioner Fred Hawkins, Jr. said he was proud of all that was accomplished.

“Osceola County has mapped a strong course for its future by continuing to build lasting partnerships with business partners, academic institutions and governments across the state and region,” said Hawkins. “We continue to focus on public safety, education, transportation and economic development. This board works really well at seeking the best solutions for all of our citizens.”
