CAROLINA BEACH - Newly elected leaders in Carolina Beach will take the oath of office at the Council's upcoming December 10th, meeting at 6:30PM at Town Hall.
The agenda for the meeting is traditionally short leading to a mostly ceremonial meeting. The December 10th, agenda primarily consists of recognizing employees for years of service, setting public hearing dates for the January meeting, appointments to various committees and other brief items of business.
Newly elected Mayor Dan Wilcox and Council members Gary Doetsch and Leann Pierce will take the oath of office following completion of "old business", a
public discussion period and adoption of the consent agenda.
The agenda released Tuesday December 3rd, listed no items under "old business."
Prior to taking the oath of office, the Council will recognize outgoing Mayor Bob Lewis and Council members Jody Smith and Tom Bridges for their service.
Lewis was elected to a four-year council term in 2009.
In November 2012 then Mayor Ray Rothrock and
Councilman Lonnie Lashley resigned their seats following the resignation of former Town Manager Tim Owens.
Lewis was later appointed to fill the Rothrock's remaining term until the 2013 election.
The Council then appointed Council members Jody Smith and Tom Bridges to fill the seat left vacant by Lewis' appointment as Mayor and the seat vacated by Lashley.
Smith and Bridges were appointed to server the
remaining term and both unsuccessfully ran for election in November.
Gary Doetsch and Leann Pierce won their bids for four-year council terms.
Dan Wilcox - who previously served on Council and unsuccessfully ran in the previous election for the Mayor's seat against Rothrock and Pat Efird - won election as Mayor in November by seven votes over Lewis.
