A reception will be held from 4:30 until 6 PM this Thursday at the Lincoln Cultural Center to mark a historic event.  At 6:30, the Lincolnton City Council will hold a special session for the swearing in of the mayor and members of the City Council elected in November.  Mary Frances White, elected to represent Ward One, will take her oath of office.  She is the first person of color ever elected to a city or county post in Lincolnton or Lincoln County.  Her election removed the stigma that had existed before: Lincoln was the only county of North Carolina's 100 where a person of color had never been elected to a county or city position.

Following the reception and swearing in ceremony, the Council will hold its regular monthly meeting.  Most of the meeting will be concerned with organizational matters and appointments to boards.  The Council will select a Mayor Pro-Tem.  Public hearings will be held on two requests related to business development, one of them a request for a conditional use permit for Ingles to erect a car wash on its property in Boger City.
