Altavista: At the Town Council’s Organizational Meeting, the Altavista Town Council appointed Mr. Tim George, 1806 Elizabeth Avenue, to fill the unexpired term vacated by the election of Mike Mattox as Mayor during the last election.   Mr. George will complete the term which will end on December 31, 2014.


Council was very fortunate to have several individuals express interest in the seat on Council. Before voting on the appointment, several Council members expressed their appreciation to Mr. Joe Emerson and Mr. Timothy Thacker for their interest in being appointed. Both were encouraged to run in future elections.


The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Town Council is Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in Council’s Chambers of the J.R. “Rudy” Burgess Building (Town Hall).
