Lovelace also appointed councilmen Pat Poole and Bill Littles to recommend a resident to fill a vacancy on the city library board.
Other appointments included:
• Steve Nelson Jr., May Downing and Ricky Thomas to the city planning commission;
• Chris Griffin and Amanda Bell to the city board of adjustments; and,
• Sammy Weaver to the city cemetery board.
