At noon on Saturday, Dec. 31, Linton's newly elected civic officials and incoming Mayor John Wilkes gathered at the city fire station to be sworn in. The ceremony, typically held at City Hall, was relocated to allow the public to attend and encourage civic involvement. Altogether around 500 showed up to wish the officials well and sample hot dogs and hamburgers.
