• Appointments of Tim Ferguson and Barbara Hester to Human Rights Commission.

Mayor Steve Austin also issued a proclamation honoring the W.C. Handy Festival Committee for its 28-year effort in planning and hosting the annual festival, which has grown into a significant tourism event.

The Panel will include human resources director Connie Galloway, finance director Robert Gunter, commissioners Brad Staton and Robert Pruitt, Newman, Henderson Fire Department Chief Scott Foreman and Henderson Police Department Field Officer Rodney Septer.
