City Council Catches Breath after Big Announcements

MAY 11, 2006 -- Wednesday night the council appointed Bill Saffo to serve out Mayor Spence Broadhurst's term.  Now, the council has to replace Saffo but there's no rush.  Broadhurst's resignation doesn't take effect until July 11th.  The person chosen to fill the position will have to be a resident of the Wilmington community.  Right now, the city council members say they have no set plan to begin the search.  First, they have to catch their breath after the whirlwind of Broadhurst's resignation and Saffo's selection.
