Jim Sells, right, is sworn into Grantville Council Post 1 Monday night by City Attorney Mark Mitchell, left. Last month, Councilman Willie Kee resigned from his council post and requested the city council appoint Sells, who won the council seat by one vote, according to the Georgia Secretary of State’s website. City Manager Al Grieshaber said the council will decide whether or not to appoint Sells at its Dec. 17 meeting. The swearing in was the only order of business that could be completed because of the lack of a quorum. Councilwoman Ruby Hines and Councilman Alan Wacaser were present. Councilman Mark King was sick, and Mayor Doug Jewell was out of town.
