Members of the Jamestown City Council were sworn in for a new term during a special-called meeting Tuesday night.
One new member was sworn in, William Murray, who will fill the seat of his brother and former councilman Larry Joe Murray, who passed away last month.
Mayor Nick Shearer recommended William for the position, and the council unanimously approved his appointment during the meeting.
“We welcome William and we’re thankful for his willingness to serve the City of Jamestown and the citizens thereof,” Shearer said. “I asked him to fill the position and he didn’t hesitate. He answered the call.”
City Attorney H.K. Cooper performed the swearing-in for the council members.
