LAKE PLACID — Village Trustee Peter Holdereid was appointed Lake Placid’s new deputy mayor on Monday.

The new appointment was made during the village’s annual organizational meeting, the first meeting led by recently elected Mayor Art Devlin, who was sworn in that day.

Holdereid has been a village trustee since 2011. He and his family own and operate the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort on Main Street. He is a graduate of Lake Placid’s Northwood School.

Newly elected Trustee Jackie Kelly was sworn in ahead of the organizational meeting. The other new trustee, Marc Galvin, owner of the Bookstore Plus on Main Street, had been sworn in earlier because was out of town on the day of the organizational meeting. He still attended virtually, and his daughter led the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of the meeting.

Holdereid and Trustee Jason Leon were appointed to act as liaisons to the village’s public works departments, and Devlin and Kelly were appointed as liaisons to the village’s fire and police departments.

The new trustees were given a number of assignments. Galvin will represent the village before the Lake Placid Business Association — a group he was already a member of as a business owner. He will also be involved with the Main Street reconstruction project, which he already had been prior to getting elected. Galvin had been appointed to the village’s Main Street Task Force as a business owner, and he provided input on the project before it went out to bid. Kelly, who has served as a member of the Lake Placid-North Elba Joint Review Board, will be involved with the ongoing land use code review, short-term rentals and the LEAF commission, which directs a portion of occupancy tax revenue to local nonprofits and other organizations for projects that have public benefits.
