David Hoback will join the Stuart Town Council, replacing former member John “Mac” Deekens.
Hoback has an impeccable record and resume according to Mayor Ray Weiland.
“He’s a former county administrator, Western Piedmont Executive Director, and who knows what else,” Weiland said. “I think he’ll make a great addition to our council.”
In other matters, the council:

*Voted to donate $1,000 to the Patrick County Master Gardeners for their work in the town.
*Voted to donate $1,500 to the Patrick County Music Association.
*Scheduled the next blight council meeting for Monday, Aug. 30 at 9 a.m.
*Discussed the ordering of American flags to go up around town.
*Heard an update from Terry Tilley, Town Manager, on the wastewater treatment plant.
*Approved the meeting minutes.
