Bainbridge elects new town officers
BAINBRIDGE -- While the winter weather might have knocked the county for a loop this week, Bainbridge trudged through and even conducted its town council meeting on Wednesday.
The first meeting of the New Year brought a change of leadership to the town council.
Council member Bonnie Osborn was elected as president of the Bainbridge Town Council following a nomination by Joel Thompson.
Thompson said he disagreed with how some things had been done in the past under previous board president Chuck McElwee, and believed a change would be a good thing.
Thompson was elected the new vice president of the town council.
The council heard that the weather required all hands on deck for snow plowing and the utility workers in Bainbridge have been working around the clock to keep roads clear.
"I want to compliment y'all for the snow removal," McElwee told Utility Superintendent Troy Eless. "Our roads are awesome compared to other areas."
Thompson expanded that discussion, adding that he had not heard any complaints about the plowing of Bainbridge streets and roads.
Meanwhile, many of the town projects have been put on hold due to weather concerns and will be picked back up when it improves.
The next Bainbridge Town Council meeting will be Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m.
