Big Spring City Council will meet Tuesday to consider a number of issues, including a second attempt at electing a mayor pro-tem.
The council first attempted to elect a mayor pro-tem â a council member designated to stand-in for the mayor when necessary â during its June 25 meeting, with District 1 Councilman Marcus Fernandez absent.
Fernandez and newly elected District 5 Councilman Raul Benavides were both nominated for the position, however, a vote yielded a tie vote of three ballots per nominee. Mayor Larry McLellan called for the election to be postponed until Tuesday night's meeting.
STANTON â Then and Now.
That's the theme for the 80th annual Old Settler's Reunion, which will be held Saturday in downtown Stanton.
Then and Now is a fitting theme, organizers say.
âWe are celebrating a time of growth and prosperity, as well as remembering our predecessors who made it possible,â said Kristi Peterson, who is helping coordinate the event.
The traditional parade will begin at 10 a.m., and dedicated tof Bob and Mary Haislip, parade marshals for 2013.
