Newly elected officials were sworn in Saturday.

It was a proud day for the dozens of county officials who were sworn into office Saturday. County council, township board members and trustees, and other county positions such as clerk and assessor began their official duties January 1st.

Newly elected county councilman for District 2 Ryan Langley said he looks forward to working with his fellow council members.

“I’ve has opportunities to meet several members of the council,” he says, “and it really is a great group of people and I think we’ve got a chance to get a lot done.”

Langley, who is one of only two Republicans to sit on the council of seven, sees the upcoming purchase of the Showers Building to be one of council’s largest priorities this year.

“We’re going to have to figure out how we are going to be paying for it,” he says. “It has been approved for them to move forward on the purchase, but I think now the question is how we are going to pay for it.”

Langley will sit on the council with the other freshman council member, Sam Allison. The first council meeting of the year will take place January 11th at 5:30PM in the courthouse.
