ST. JOSEPH — Michele Binkley was appointed Monday to fill a vacant seat on the St. Joseph City Commission.

She will replace Commissioner Peggy Getty, who resigned because she and her husband are moving out of the area. Binkley will be sworn in later this week and will serve the remainder of Getty’s term, which expires in November.
