|Former Gilbert mayor appointed alderman|
Former Gilbert Mayor Marcus Louis Ezell was appointed to the board of alderman for the village at a special meeting in February.
Ezell fills the unexpired term of Lovie Ezell, who recently resigned due to health reasons.
Mayor Mike Stephens said alderman Leo Miller was named mayor pro-tem, a position formerly held by Lovie Ezell.
"I hated to see Mr. Lovie go because we worked real well together," Stephens said. "But we will continue to work on the things we need to do for the town."
Stephens said he looks forward to working with the former mayor because of his experience in government.
"I think he will be good for Gilbert. He knows the format of the town and he knows about the town," Stephens said.
A special election will be held Oct. 4 for two aldermen positions, one to fill the seat vacated by Lovie Ezell and the second for the seat now occupied by Kay Dunaway, who was appointed after former alderwoman Crystal Welch resigned.
"We only have three aldermen, and two of those seats will be on the ballot," Stephens said.
The village of Gilbert's Board of Aldermen meets the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at town hall. The next meeting is March 13.
Fair a success
Mayor Stephens said the fair held the last weekend in February netted more than $1,800 for the village, despite losing one day because of rain.
"The first day, Thursday, it rained out. They opened Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. We had a good turnout, and it was a success," Stephens said.
Stephens said because of the support of citizens, the board of aldermen will discuss hosting an Oktoberfest fair in the fall.
"We are looking to have it again in October," he said.
Stephens noted there were no incidents or disturbances at the fair and the saggy pants ordinance seemed to be working.
"Everybody there knew about the ordinance and there were no saggy pants violations," he said.
The board of aldermen will discuss what to do with the profits of the event at the March 13 meeting.
