During the regular meeting of the City of Ghent on Jan. 10, Mayor Jimmy Lewellyn started the new year by appointing commissioners to oversee several areas of the city.
Lewellyn told the board he would like to appoint each of them to be responsible for an area.
He asked Commissioner Larry Hearn to oversee the streets in the city. If Hearn saw anything that needed attention, he was to call the city maintenance person, Bobby Snow. If he was unsuccessful at getting in touch with Snow, he was to call Lewellyn.
