The latest transformation of the Fulton City Council is almost set to get to work.

Three new councilpersons — Mike West, Lauren Nelson and Alan Combs — will be sworn in during the council's regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the council chambers on the upper level of Fulton City Hall (18 E. 4th St.).

West, Nelson and Combs will take the oath of office after Ward 3 councilperson Lindsey Pace-Snook presents a resolution certifiying the April 6 municipal election results.

West defeated incumbent Valerie Sebacher for the Ward 1 seat. He is a familiar face on the council, having previously served 14 years — five terms in Ward 1 and two in Ward 4.

Nelson prevailed over incumbent Rick Shiverdecker in Ward 4, while Combs ran unopposed for the Ward 3 seat. Pace-Snook decided not to run again for the council after moving to a different area inside Fulton city limits.

Incumbent Jeffrey Stone is returning to the council for another term in Ward 2 after running unopposed.

Eric Qualls will also be sworn in Tuesday night as city attorney after running unopposed.

Resolutions will be presented honoring Shiverdecker, Pace-Snook and Sebacher for their years of service on the council. Shiverdecker served five terms, Pace-Snook three and Sebacher one.

Bob Sterner will also be recognized with a resolution for his five years of service as city attorney.

In other business Tuesday night, council members will hear a resolution authorizing Fulton Mayor Lowe Canell to sign all documents in relation to the city's landfill pasture land-lease agreement for five years.

A resolution will also be presented to authorize Cannell to sign all documents in relation to a contract with Ecton Construction in Montgomery County for the 2021 10th Street improvement project.

A third resolution will be given to the council authorizing Cannell to sign all documents in relation to a contract with M&M Landscaping and Construction LLC of Eugene for the city's 2021 sanitary sewer renewal project.

The council on Tuesday night will also consider approval of a request from Nancy Lewis — on behalf of the Kingdom of Callaway Historical Society — to close Ravine Street between 3rd and 5th streets on June 13 for the organization's annual meeting.

In other city news, the annual spring cleanup week starts today and continues through Friday along regular pickup routes. Construction debris and tires will not be taken.
