County's General Elections in November. This year's 
reorganization is for a six month period, from February 
11th until December 8, 2020 when a new council 
will be seated. 

 At its' last meeting, the council elected a new Mayor 
and Mayor Pro-Tem, both of whom have previously 
served in the positions. Councilmember John Capoccia

Rachelle Arizmendi was sworn in as Mayor Pro-Tem.
