Frank Potoczak, owner of the Castle Grill in Lehighton, has assumed the presidency of the Lehighton Downtown Initiative Committee (LDIC).
Potoczak had been vice president. He succeeds Todd Zimmerman, who resigned as president last month.
The vice presidency is currently vacant. Other officers are Georgia Traupman, secretary, and Potoczak, acting treasurer.
Potoczak said one of his main priorities is looking for new members. "We're looking for new people to get involved."
