Winkler will also swear in Councilwoman Barbara Tankersley, who was appointed to complete the remaining two years of Councilman James Lickliter’s term. Tankersley, who was appointed two years ago, had planned to run to retain her council seat but was disqualified due to errors on her petition.

A council member for 10 years, Lickliter’s resignation is effective on Dec. 31.

Residents and business owners are encouraged to attend the ceremony to meet their new council members.
