A meeting was held Thursday morning by the Yadkinville Town Board of Commissioners to determine how the leadership team would move forward following the unexpected passing of longtime Mayor Hubert Gregory.
It was decided that Mayor Pro Tem Eddie Norman would take on the role of mayor. He was sworn in at the Thursday meeting.
Commissioner Monta Davis-Oliver will now serve as mayor pro tem.
Commissioner Kelly Oliver recently had to resign his position as he moved out of town. Town residency is a requirement to serve on the board.
Scott Winebarger was nominated to fill Oliver’s seat. With Norman taking over as mayor that leaves one open seat on the board. A final decision has not yet been made on when that seat will be filled.
