The first Lincoln City Council meeting in the new fiscal year took place Monday night. Mayor Beth Davis asked each of the city’s department heads who are appointed annually to return for another year of service. All accepted the offer and the council approved each of them: Bill Bates, city attorney; Lester Last, building and codes official; Tracy Jackson, streets superintendent; Stuart Erlenbush, police chief.
Melanie Riggs, city clerk, administered the oath of office to all but Erlenbush. He will be in attendance next week.
