When the LaFollette Utilities Board met Monday morning, David Longmire was elected as the board chairman.
Board member Kent Younce made a motion to nominate Longmire for chairman, Sue Troutman for vice chairman and Dr. Frank Shaw for secretary. The motion was seconded by James Walker, board member and former chairman. The motion passed unanimously.
Utilities board attorney Michael Hatmaker swore Walker in as a board member for his second term. Walker was appointed to the board for his second five-year term by the LaFollette City Council on June 5. Every board member is appointed by the city council and is limited to two five-year terms.
The board also passed a motion to reappoint Hatmaker as the board’s attorney.
