The public is encouraged to attend the swearing-in ceremony tonight of its recently elected new mayor and council members.
Former council member and challenger Nick Girone won the mayoral seat, while council newcomers Mark Slaby and Laurie Tillet also beat incumbents for city council seats during the election earlier this month. Another city council newcomer, Marc Crail, will be sworn in after he was unopposed. The four will begin serving their two-year terms immediately following the ceremony.
Residents attending can also express their appreciation to the outgoing mayor and city council members for their years of service and commitment to Mount Dora.
The short ceremony is at 6 pm tonight at City Hall, 510 Baker Street. After the swearing-in ceremony, residents may leave or stay for the city council meeting that follows.
