The Jacksonville City Council has two new members. Karen Mudd and Mike Bartlett are now representing Ward 3 as the ward’s aldermen. They replaced Marcy Patterson and Travis Richardson who left the council in August. Both are longtime Jacksonville residents who look forward to serving the community.

Other city business

Certain businesses will now be able to sell alcohol before noon on Sundays. Only businesses that could sell alcohol on Sundays will be affected by the change. This change was pushed by local businesses, who felt the old rules were pointlessly restrictive. Chief Mefford assured the community that these changes will not impact enforcement against DUIs, and that their enforcement will still be 24/7.

The council also approved two TIF projects in the downtown area. These emergency projects are to help repair buildings and keep them in productive use.

You can watch the swearing-in ceremony above, or the full meeting in the players below:
