The Nixa City Council has a new representative for District 1 through April 2020.
Kendal Dingus has been appointed to fill the remainder of the term of Jimmy Ledbetter. Ledbetter had to resign the position because he moved out of state. Dingus was nominated by Mayor Brian Steele and unanimously approved by the other council members.
Mayor Steele cited Dingus’ prior experience on city council. Dingus had previously been elected to represent District 1, so the Mayor said voters in that district had already shown approve of Mr. Dingus.
Scott Perryman was chosen by council to serve as Mayor Pro Tem.
