Bottenberg appointed to Waukee City Council

Posted January 31, 2017 in Web Exclusives, Waukee

At the Jan. 30 special meeting, the Waukee City Council voted unanimously to approve the appointment of Charlie Bottenberg to fill the vacant fifth seat on the at-large council. The seat was vacated by former City Councilman Rick Peterson earlier this month, who stepped down to take a position with the Iowa Economic Development Authority.

Bottenberg, who says he was already planning to run for Waukee City Council in the next election, has resided in Waukee with his wife and three children for more than a decade. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology from Drake University, an MBA from Iowa State University and a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Drake University Law School. He operates a law firm in Waukee. He has also served as Board Chair of the Waukee Area Chamber of Commerce and on several non-profit boards in the Waukee area.

“I want to serve because I want to give back to this community like it has given to me,” Bottenberg said. “Waukee is a fantastic place to live, to work and to raise a family. I look forward to adding my thoughts and perspectives to a council that has already done so much for our city.”

Bottenberg will be sworn in at the Monday, Feb. 6 regular meeting, with the term ending Dec. 31, 2017.
