Newly and re-elected council members and mayor were sworn in to their positions at the Jan. 5 St. Joseph City Council meeting.
Mayor Rick Schultz retained his position after the November election, defeating Bob Loso. Dale Wick was also re-sworn to his city council seat, while Matt Killam took the oath for the first time, replacing outgoing city council member Steve Frank.
Monday night also marked Frank’s final city council meeting. Frank was invited to say a few words before the meeting was adjourned.
“It’s been a real privilege to work with all four of you . . . even though we disagree sometimes,” Frank said while still seated in his chair.
Upon rising for the last time, Mayor Schultz offered Frank his nameplate to take home as a souvenir of his time in office. The mayor also made a proclamation, honoring Frank for his diligent work throughout the years on behalf of the city and its citizens.
