Meeting on Monday, former council president Gregg Roudebush administered the oath of office to councilman Mike McCafferty. McCafferty will fill out the three remaining years on Roudebush's term.
Roudebush resigned, effective Monday, to take a seat on the Greene County Council following his election Nov. 6.
McCafferty, a former Worthington fire chief who served about 23 years, was selected in a vote of Jefferson 1 and Jefferson 2 precinct committeemen, to fill the three-year, unexpired term of Roudebush.
McCafferty previously served on the town council for six years in the late 1990s.
In the meeting on New Year's Day, veteran councilman Mackey Stahl was elected council president.
Stahl is in the second year of his sixth term.
He was sworn in on Jan. 1, 2011 for his second stint on the council. Previously, he served from 1984-96.
The council also changed its meeting time from 6 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the second Tuesday each month. The Utility Board meeting will follow the regular council meetings.
Jacob Fish was also retained as town attorney.
