MASON (FOX19) -- Mason City Council has decided to keep members David Nichols as mayor and Victor Kidd as vice mayor.
At council's organizational meeting on Sunday, four returning members were sworn in to serve another four-year term. Members Rich Cox, Nichols, Char Pelfrey, and Don Prince will serve through Nov. 30, 2017.
Three or four council members are elected at-large in odd-numbered years.
The city’s charter calls for an organizational meeting on the first day of December in odd-numbered years. At that meeting, a mayor and vice mayor are selected by the council members from among their members.
In addition to his duties as a council member, the mayor presides over council meetings, acts as the ceremonial head of the city and administers oaths. The vice mayor assumes these duties in the absence of the mayor.
