The Sebastian City Council appointed Jim Hill as our new Mayor and Fred Jones as the new Vice Mayor.
Chris Nunn, Fred Jones, and Bob McPartlan kept their seats on the Sebastian City Council after voters re-elected them on Nov. 2, 2021.
All three were sworn in Wednesday to serve two years. They recently served a one-year term after Damien Gilliams, Pamela Parris, and Charles Mauti were removed from office during the Sebastian recall election.
But, McPartlan warned there are some tough decisions to be made by the City Council.
“The coming year is going to be difficult. I mean we’re just discussing Crab E Bills here. We got the stormwater plan that’s going to be coming, and also the salary structure. Those three items right there; that’s a lot of money. Some very tough decisions are going to have to be made,” McPartlan said.
McPartlan also spoke about the importance of people showing up at the City Council meetings instead of talking about it on social media.
“We need that public input. Not just the social media where they can say anything they want, but actually come out face and face and discuss these issues. We’ll need the public on that,” McPartlan added.
Sebastian Daily will be publishing an article shortly about the city’s plans for Crab E Bills Seafood Market and the building.
