WLDS News | September 8th, 2021

South Jacksonville officially has a new Village President.

The Village of South Jacksonville Board of Trustees met in special session Tuesday night for a handful of action items including the appointment of a new Village President.

Trustee Mike Broaddus was officially sworn in prior to the close of the meeting. He says rather than keeping his vote as a Trustee, he is giving that up so a new Trustee can be selected.

Broaddus says it’s an honor to serve and wants to help bring people back together.

I’m going to try and get things back to the way it was. I’ve going to give the Trustees back the power they had before. I’m going to be doing the daily operations and we are trying to get everything back to a normal state.

More communication, my big thing is going to be communication between me, the board members and the employees, and of course the citizens of South Jacksonville.”

Broaddus says it’s now up to one of the residents of the village to step up and answer the call to serve.
