Mike Terry was sworn in as municipal judge for the City of Moulton before the City Council’s regular meeting Monday afternoon.
Terry has accepted a contract to serve in the position for a two-year term, Mayor Roger Weatherwax said.
The new municipal judge was nominated in a special called meeting last week by District 5 Councilman Brent White following a five-month trial period conducted by Court Clerk Erin Strange and staff to fill the position.
Terry will replace former Municipal Judge Joseph Propst.
In other business, the council also issued a proclamation commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Freeman Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, located at 2871 Byler Road in Moulton.
“The church has held several activities throughout the year celebrating its anniversary,” District 4 Councilwoman Cassandra Lee said.
The church will conclude its celebrations with a banquet at DoubleTree by Hilton-Riverfront in Decatur on Saturday, July 13, and a special anniversary service at the church on Sunday, July 14, where Lee will present the proclamation on behalf of the city.
The Council also approved an ordinance introduced by Building Inspector Renay Saint for the re-zoning of a property at 1659 Morgan Street.
All councilmembers were present for the meeting.
