Loxley to appoint new council member

Loxley residents who would like to take the place of Derek Middleton on the Town Council have just a few weeks to get letters of interest to Mayor Billy Middleton or Town Clerk Carol Middleton.

Derek Middleton’s position became open when he resigned last month. According to a statement that Derek Middleton read to the council when he announced his resignation, his leaving the council was due to “unforeseen circumstances.” Comments made on the council dais at the time Middleton announced his resignation indicated that he had his home “under contract.” He declined to comment further. Middleton held “place 5” on the council.
