Last Thursday’s (Sept. 24) deadline passed with no one qualifying in the town of Thaxton to fill a vacant alderman seat.
Thaxton Mayor Johnny Coleman said the board will attempt to appoint someone to the position when the board of aldermen meets next Tuesday, October 6.
“We’ll take nominations and then vote,” Coleman said. “We have at least one person in mind, if they’ll agree to serve if appointed.”
Alderwoman Kelsey Bevill tendered her resignation to the board effective September 1, making it necessary for the town to hold an election.
