While the Williamston City Council welcomed its newest member to its ranks — council member John Bisard — there is one spot still up for grabs. And for at least the next two weeks, it’ll stay that way: Vacant. As is procedure, the City Council met again Monday evening, as it’s wont to do every second and fourth Monday of the month.

Curtis brings a Williamston-heavy resume, as she said she’s been in the town for the past 55 years.
