In a close, four to three, vote Tina Kelley was re-elected as Morgan County council chair. The discussion to select a new chair opened with Member Ned Mecham nominating Don Mathews for the position. Member Kilmer seconded it. Member Nelson raised concerns about Member Mathews travel schedule. Mathews has attended meetings by phone several times over the past year as his work has required travel. Member Mathews indicated that his schedule is changing and he would be present at all but one meeting in the next year. Nelson also expressed concern about whether Mathews had time to serve the hours necessary to fulfill the duties of council chair. Member Nelson nominated Council Chair Tina Kelley for a second term. The council then voted and Kelley was re-elected to serve a second term by the narrow margin. Member Mathews was voted in as Vice Chair of the Council unanimously.
