New London Town Council fills board vacancy

New London’s Board of Commissioners made a decision at its meeting this month regarding filling a vacant position on the commission.

Bill Peak, a former member of the board who finished fourth in the voting in the November election one vote behind Johnny Chestnut, was named to the town’s council.

Commissioner Richard Kimmer made the motion to nominate Peak, who previously served 21 years on New London’s town board. Peak will serve the term won by Dan Phillips in the general election. Phillips resigned in December, citing family reasons.

The motion was seconded by Commissioner Marcus Mullis and approved unanimously. Peak was then sworn into office by the Town Administrator Susan Almond.

At the meeting, the Board discussed the following items:

Mullis inquired into putting in a speed radar sign in the town.

Kimmer informed the Board regarding potential training opportunities for the fire department.

Almond said a survey will be sent to residents in regards to the new park in town to find out ideas for new elements for the park.

Mayor Tate Daniels gave an update on the new park, noting quotes were obtained for a park sign and a chain-link fence for a dog park. He also said 104 memorial bricks have been sold, with some already going to the engraver.
