Mayor John Long made two appointments at the City Council meeting on February 6. Long appointed Rusty Rothweiler to the position of Alderman Ward II to fulfill the term of Dane Foster. Foster stepped down from his position after having a change of residency, which no longer allows him to fulfill the position of Alderman. The board made a motion with all in favor approving Rothweiler to fulfill the term as Alderman Ward II. The term will expire in April of this year.
Next, Long appointed Jennifer Adams as City Collector, taking the position of Joyce Viloria, who retired on January 31 after 40 years of service. The board made a motion with all in favor approving Adams as the City Collector. Adams also is currently employed as the Administrative Assistant for the City.
