It is all about preparation for the upcoming year for the Elizabethton City Council.
Councilmen will meet in their first official post-November election meeting on Thursday, Dec. 8, inside the council chambers at City Hall at 6 p.m. to address the agenda and vote on a pair of positions.
The meeting will see the members vote for the position of Elizabethton mayor and mayor pro-term for the upcoming term of two years.
Curt Alexander has served in the role as mayor since 2006, earning the position in 2014 with unanimous support from the board. The position of mayor pro-tem will also be voted on. Bill Carter has served in the position since being named in 2012.
The City Council will see a new face on the board with Kim Birchfield assuming the position as a councilman. Birchfield will assume his role as councilman after earning a spot to the board during the November general election. Birchfield was the top vote-getter, followed by Alexander and Jeff Treadway, who retained their positions on the council finishing in the top three for votes. The other two members that ran in the election was then-incumbent Bob Cable and citizen Jenett Morgan.
The current council is comprised of Alexander, Birchfield, Treadway, Carter, Tester and Sam Shipley.
