New councilmembers, mayor to be sworn in, town meeting next week

On April 17, residents of Hancock elected Roland Lanehart, Jr. as the new mayor, Joshua McCusker and Richard Strong to town council.

Next Monday, May 8, the three newly-elected officials will be sworn in to begin their term.

The swearing in ceremony will take place at 6 p.m. Monday evening in Town Hall.

The following evening, Tuesday, May 9, officials will hold their annual budget meeting at 7 p.m. A workshop for town officials will be held prior to the meeting at 6 p.m.

The workshop is open to the public, but unlike the regular meeting, the public has no input and officials can take no decisions.
