The City of Danielsville began the process of moving forward with its nearly new council and staff at the March 12 regular business meeting, with the first order of business being to swear in new mayor Todd Higdon.
Higdon told the council and audience members that he promises to do his best to lead the city forward, with the diligence and guidance of the council.
“Danielsville has some good days coming,” Higdon said.
There is one seat left to fill on the council, however, which is the council seat vacated by Junne Temple in her bid for mayor.
The council took no action on the appointment March 12. A motion by council member Jamie Spurlin to table the appointment died for lack of a second; then a second motion by council member Michael Wideman to appoint Jerry Riley to the seat also died for lack of a second.
The council then agreed to advertise for candidates to fill the council seat term, which expires Dec. 31.
Higdon said he had had a second person contact him about filling the seat, but that person had to withdraw his name from consideration due to his work schedule.
