City Attorney Tom Goff administered the oath of office to Mayor Bonnie Henderson during Monday night’s City Commission meeting. The Mayor then proceeded to swear in returning City Commissioner Michael Anderson and incoming Commissioners Ed Schott and Rick Hussel. The new four year term for the Mayor and two year terms for the Commissioners will begin on January 1st.
The recent death of long time Commissioner Bob Vincent, whose passing in October was too close to Election Day for the County Clerk to remove his name from ballot, has left a vacancy in the fourth City Commissioner position. The City Commission will appoint a replacement for Vincent at the January 9th meeting.
