During its work session on Monday night, Grantville Mayor Doug Jewell announced the city council will hold an election for the city’s mayor pro tem at its Jan. 23 meeting.

The position is voted on by the city council.

Grantville’s current mayor pro tem is council member Ruby Hines.

The mayor pro tem acts as mayor if Mayor Doug Jewell is unable to perform his duties, and the position is held for one year.

If a decision is not reached by a majority during the first vote, four more ballots at other meetings will be cast, with whoever has the most votes winning.

At the work session Monday, Jewell announced the council members’ committee appointments for 2020:

  • Councilmember Jim Sells will serve as chair of the police committee. Council members Mark King and Alan Wacaser will serve on the committee.
  • Wacaser will serve as chair of the utilities committee. Hines and Sells will serve on the committee.
  • Hines will serve as chair of the administrative committee. King and Sells will serve on the committee.
  • King will serve as chair of the streets and public works committee. Hines and Wacaser will serve on the committee.

At the request of Sells, the city council’s January meeting was rescheduled from Jan. 27 to Jan. 23 at 6:30 p.m.

Jewell also announced the city will be holding its Annual Strategic Planning Session on Saturday, Feb. 15, at the Golden Creek Room at the Coweta County Fairgrounds from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Jewell said the public is invited to attend the meeting.
