Councilmember Debbie Bertlin, who first joined Council in 2011, was chosen as Mayor for a two year term, after having served the prior two years as Deputy Mayor. She is assuming the role from Councilmember Bruce Bassett, who served six years as Mayor -- he will continue as a Councilmember for another two years.

At the same meeting, Council selected Salim Nice as Deputy Mayor for a two year term. He first joined the Council in July 2017 to fill a vacated seat, and then ran uncontested in last November's election for Position No. 2.
