Valley Grande City Council Discusses Council Vacancies

Published 10:05 a.m. Thursday, July 11, 2024

The Valley Grande City Council moved one step closer to filling a vacant council seat on July 1.

Councilman Bruce Hughes was on leave after he died in a hunting camp on June 13. Hughes was inside a mobile home when it caught fire and was unable to get out. His funeral was held on 21 June.

Councilwoman Jane Harris said she discussed the vacancy with the League of Councils. Harris said she was told the position must be brought up at the next council meeting on July 15 and voted on by the current council, including Mayor Wayne Labbe and council members Jane Harris, Sara Day, Kay Davidson and Robby Rose to select Hughes’ replacement.

Hughes’ term ends in August 2025. He narrowly defeated incumbent Tammy Troha in the 2020 election.

President Pro Tem Kay Davidson presided in Mayor Wayne Labbe’s absence. Councilors Jane Harris, Sara Day and Robby Rose were in attendance.

The other council business was for the City of Valley Grande to own the Valley Grande Community Center. A classified ad for bids on the building will appear in Selma Times-Journal Later this month.

The next Valley Grande City Council meeting will be held at 5:00 p.m. on July 15 at Valley Grande City Hall.
