Council president Maritza Davila appointed her colleagues to various City Council committees this week.
Davila, who had snubbed Velez last year, assigned him as chairman of statutory agencies committee, vice chairman of public works, and vice chairman of the education committee, according to latest assignment sheet.
Velez said he is happy with the assignments. His particular focus will be on the public works committee, he said. He had been snubbed last year for opposing and criticizing Davila.
Davila also assigned Ruby Cotton as chairwoman of the Community Development committee. Neither Cotton nor Velez opposed Davila during the City Council presidency vote on Jul. 1.
Davila, who was picked to serve as president for another year, has kept leadership spots of other committees unchanged.
