MEADOWLAKES — After 10 years on the City Council, Christine Forsyth stepped down May 24, picked up her nameplate and shook hands with the newcomer taking her spot.

"We all thank you for your service, Christine," Mayor Don Williams said during a special council meeting at Totten Hall, 177 Broadmoor, to canvass the results of the May 14 election.

The victorious campaigners — including incumbent Franzella Jones and newcomers Paul Sarcione and Barry Cunningham — took the oath of office during the meeting.
