Due to the fact that a quorum of elected officials was not established, the Governor’s Commission on the city of Brookhaven will continue its work. In an interview conducted last week, Commission Chair Ben Vinson said in the event of a runoff election, the commission’s work would be stretched a bit longer.
However, once the final elections results are certified and the officials take office, then all work from the commission will be turned over to the new city officials to begin operations for the city of Brookhaven, which will begin formal work Dec. 17.
The Governor’s Commission on the city of Brookhaven will host a special called meeting tonight at 7 p.m. as well as a regular meeting Thursday at 8 p.m.
