Bells appoints new mayor

BELLS, TX -- The city of Bells appointed their new mayor Tuesday night.

Wednesday she talked to us about some of her goals for the city.

Angela Lablanc replaces former mayor Gary Martin, who stepped down Thursday without giving a reason.

Lablanc recently served as mayor pro-tem and has been on the city council for the past 4 years.

Lablanc says one of her first priorities will be to look into bells' water issues.

Earlier this week, the city was under a boil order, the fifth water problem since November.

Lablanc said, "We've hired someone as of last night to assist us with working through the water problems."

Mayor Lablanc says they'll begin to look into updating city maps to address the water problems.

She says the maps haven't been redrawn since the city was founded.
