Reynolds takes city council seat

Staff writer

Mayor Tom Spencer recommended Peabody resident Rick Reynolds fill the empty position created when he was appointed mayor after the resignation of mayor Larry Larson.

In a state of the city address Monday night, Spencer shared his three-phase plan as mayor.

He would like to complete a community housing assessment survey, and develop and implement a strategic plan.

He will have office hours of 3 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays to meet with citizens at the city building.

Jimmie and Emily Tennant, new owners of 119 N. Walnut St., told council members the renovation of the downtown building for their businesses and home is going well.

“We finally got electrical service and our sewer hooked up, which has been our biggest struggle,” Emily said.

They plan to live upstairs and have their businesses on the main floor and in the basement.

Tennant Wood and Metal will take up the front of the building and sell handmade home décor items.

An ebay store is already up and running.

Jimmie plans to have a metal shop in the back section of the building and an area in the basement for ebay items.
