There were two North Bend City Council meetings last Tuesday where it was out with the old and in with the new.

Mayor Jeff Kluthe called the first meeting to order after a public hearing on the annexation of what is being called the Mehaffey Addition on the east end of town at the end of Seventh Street, where the late Bob Mehaffey used to live.

Following the hearing, Kluthe gave the annexation ordinance its first of three readings.

At the end of the first meeting, thanks was given to Kluthe for his more than nine years as mayor and his 10 years of service to the city. Thanks was also given to outgoing council members Emily Kirschenmann and Tom Mullally, who had served for nine years, three months and eight years, respectively.

With 11 friends and family members in attendance, Dean Lux was sworn in as the new mayor of North Bend. Also sworn in were new councilmen Ken Streff and Dan Minarick.

Bart Bosco and Rod Scott, who have served on the council for two years each, remain on the council. Scott was elected by the council to be council president.

Mayor Lux made the following departmental appointments: health and safety, Bosco; pool and park, Streff; auditorium, Scott; and water and sewer, Minarick.

Lux said he will invite Dodge County Sheriff Steve Hespen to a meeting for the council to chat with.
