Elgin Mayor Brad Hanley and Elgin Town Council members Melissa Emmons and Norman “Bubba” Ernst were sworn into office during a ceremony March 1 at Blaney Baptist Church in Elgin. Hanley then asked all council members to bring their ideas and priorities to the table to create a comprehensive strategic plan for the town as his first action as mayor. “We need to move forward to begin crafting a document to set an agenda for Elgin and work toward that agenda,” Hanley said during the meeting.
