FROM STAFF REPORTS

Three new Statesville City Council members will be sworn in during Monday evening’s regular council meeting.

Jones will represent Ward 1, Lawton Ward 4 and Foster Ward 6.

After the swearing-in ceremony, the council will elect a mayor pro tempore for the coming year.

The pre-agenda meeting begins at 6 p.m. and the regular meeting at 7 p.m. Both meetings are in City Hall.
