Pulaski has change of command

PULASKI — The Town of Pulaski’s new mayor and councilmen officially took office last night after being administered their oaths before a combination reorganizational and regular monthly council meeting.
Pulaski County Circuit Court Deputy Clerk Alice Dobbins administered the oaths to Mayor Jeff Worrell and Councilmen Joel Burchett Jr., Robert Bopp and Morgan Welker before the crowd in attendance. Bopp and Welker were elected in May for their first terms in office, and Burchett was re-elected to the town council.
The Town Council’s first order of business was to elect a vice mayor. In a 5-0 vote, Councilman Dave Clark was elected to the position.
“Congratulations, Mr. Clark, you are but a heartbeat away from this chair,” Worrell joked.
Clark said he didn’t really want it put that way.
The Council recognized its outgoing mayor and councilmen with resolutions, presented to each of them.
Worrell told them he was honored to have served with them over the years and assured them they were leaving the town in better condition than they found it.
Former Mayor Charles Wade and outgoing Councilmen Dan Talbert Jr. and Lane Penn all were recognized for service to the town from July 1, 2004, to June 30, 2008. Some of those initiatives Wade was recognized for include renovations to Gatewood recreation facilities, creation of Heritage Park, completion of the New River Trail, renovation of Maple Shade Shopping Plaza, refurbishment of Cool Springs and the MacGill Skateboard Park, support of a Rental Inspection Ordinance, and preparation of the town’s first zero-based budget.
Talbert was recognized for the Gatewood renovation, Heritage Park, the New River Trail and Cool Springs.
Penn was recognized for support of economic development, New River Trail, Heritage Park, Cool Springs and the Rental Inspection Program. He also was recognized for having served on the board of directors of the Pepper’s Ferry Regional Wastewater Treatment Authority and the Greater Pulaski Alliance.

All three were recognized for their parts in bringing James Hardie and other new business to the community.
