The chair presides at all regular council meetings, while the vice chair presides in the absence of the chair. The executive pro tem is selected to perform some of the county executive’s duties in the event of the executive’s absence or temporary disability.

“I sincerely look forward to working collaboratively with everyone,” Mello said. “We have a lot of work to do.”

In other business, the council confirmed the reappointment of B. Edward Hamilton to the Graham Land Use Advisory Commission.
As well, the council passed a resolution remembering the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for his contributions to the ideals of equality and justice throughout the world.
