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.
â€śWe are celebrating a time of growth and prosperity, as well as remembering our predecessors who made it possible,â€ť 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.
