Council to pick mayor Wednesday

Marion City Council will meet in special session at 4 p.m. next Wednesday to select a new mayor. At Monday's regular council meeting, Mickey Alexander resigned his post as mayor effective next Tuesday. He had served as mayor for 29 years.

Any legal voter age 21 or up who lives inside the City of Marion is eligible to be selected.

The meeting had originally been scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday, but was moved back a day for procedural reasons.
