WENONA — As a result of the recent election in Wenona, residents now have a new alderman and a new mayor. Christopher Smith took his seat at the council table, and Zak North replaced Jeff Pickard as mayor.

The Monday night meeting began with the administration of the oath of office for those members of the council who were elected. JoEllen White will again serve as city clerk. Sally Bane will continue in office as city treasurer. Kevin Revels and Justin Orabutt will again represent the Second and Third Wards respectively. Smith will represent the residents of the First Ward.

In his first action, North called for the appointments of Thomas Martin for police chief; Sheryl Kuzma for city attorney; and Dean Chalkey of Chamlin and Associates as the city engineer. There being no objections from the council, the appointments were approved.

North then assigned the aldermen to the six city committees.

At the close of the meeting, Mayor Zak North was asked about the challenge of his new position. North said his primary goal is to work closely with the council to complete the projects already underway.

* City administrator Bill Simmons discussed improvements planned for the 15-foot by 70-foot batting cage.  The concrete cost of the improvement would be about $1,200. The city would also spend about $700 to purchase a movable pitcher’s mound. 

* Chalkey reported on the progress on Safe Routes to Schools. He stated that the project was nearing completion and expected it would be completed within the next 1½ half weeks.
