Several items dealing with the outcome of the May 5 General Election will be addressed by the Lamesa City Council at this coming week’s regular meeting.
    Council members will meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the City Hall, 601 South 1st Street.
    The City Council formally will canvass the election returns and is expected to approve a resolution declaring Jason Moreno as winner of the contested race for the District 4 representative on the council.
    Moreno received 63.2 percent of the votes, compared to 36.8 percent for Fabian Rubio.
    City Attorney Russell Casselberry is scheduled to administer the oath of office to Council members Moreno, Brant Stewart and Bobby G. Gonzales.
    Stewart and Gonzales both were unopposed in their election bids for District 1 and District 5, respectively, and previously were declared by the council as being elected.
    Council members will consider approving a resolution of appreciation for Fred Vera for his three years of service on the City Council.
    Vera did not seek re-election this year to the District 5 seat.
    The election of a new mayor pro-tem for a one-year term of office will be conducted. Once that person has been elected, Casselberry will administer the oath of office.
