City council member to take office today

Posted: Updated:
(KWWL) -

Tonight, Waterloo will get a new city council member.

Tom Powers will take his oath of office at the city council meeting tonight.

He won a special election last week to become the new representative for Ward 1. He's replacing David Jones who stepped down earlier this year after accepting a position out of state.

Also tonight, the city council will consider 3 travel requests from different city employees.

These requests are pretty common at council meetings, but could get more attention now after a recent controversy. Last month, the city council denied Mayor Hart's request for $1,440 to travel to a mayor's conference in Indiana.
