Mount Gilead Town Commissioners will have their regular monthly meeting tonight.
It’s the first meeting for returning Mayor Earl Poplin, who earlier had retired from the office after four terms. Poplin returned this year to face Mayor Patty Almond, who served one year in the position.
In remarks made when he took the oath of office Dec. 1, Poplin said he wants to “set the tone” for reconciliation among local citizens who he described as “divided” following political developments of the past couple of years.
Tonight’s meeting will be at the Mount Gilead Fire Station on E. Allenton St., starting at 7 p.m.
WMTG will provide its usual coverage of the meeting, with reports in local updates starting tomorrow (Wed.), and a complete rebroadcast Wed., Dec. 11, at 9 p.m.
