SHERMAN – Tuesday marked the first day of Bill Magers’ second term as the mayor of Sherman.
Magers and two new council members were sworn in at City Hall Tuesday afternoon.
The re-elected mayor beat Councilman John Markl by a narrow margin of 287 votes back on May 12th.
Magers says the election was challenging but adds it's time now to start focusing on Sherman’s future.
"It feels great. I'm real excited about this council. It's a seasoned council. Our newest council member was the head of the P.N.Z.'s so he has experience. Expectations are high for this council so I’m looking forward to another year."
Magers says the first item on his agenda is making sure that Sherman’s economic growth continues.
