Woodbury officially has a new Board of Mayor and Aldermen following Tuesday evening’s swearing-in ceremony at City Hall. Members recognized the two new and two outgoing members of the Board along with former Mayor Ricky Cope. Cope presented LuAnn Curlee and Adam Melton with plaques thanking them for their many years of service to the Town. Curlee and Melton will be replaced by new members Lois Larmier and Clayton Cason when the Board has its first official meeting in January.
Vice-Mayor Charlie Harrell presented Cope with a plaque honoring his 25 years of service to the community. Cope first joined the Board in 1983 and continued as a member until being elected Mayor in 2000. State Representative Stratton Bone was also on hand to present Cope with a framed resolution passed in his honor by the Tennessee General Assembly. The resolution commended Cope for all his years of service to Woodbury, Cannon County and the State of Tennessee. Cope then addressed the crowd and told them he appreciated and enjoyed his time on the Board and said he would always be available to help if anyone needed him.
Following the presentations, City Attorney Bill Bryson swore in all the members of the Board. Charlie Harrell, Dottie Duggin, Faye Northcutt-Knox and JoAnn Davis were all re-elected to the Board during the November election.
The full Board will have its first official meeting in January.
