Loveland City Council held an organizational meeting Dec. 6 to swear in members for the next term, as well as appoint the positions of Mayor and Vice Mayor.
In the November 2021 election, Loveland residents voted to fill four open seats on Council. Two new candidates (John Hart and Kip Ping) were elected to Council, and two candidates (Tim Butler and Ted Phelps) were re-appointed. All four were sworn into office at the Dec. 6 meeting.
Once the new councilmembers were sworn in, the Mayor and Vice Mayor positions were nominated and voted upon. Kathy Bailey was reappointed Mayor. Ted Phelps was appointed Vice Mayor. Both will hold the seats for two-year terms.
Loveland City Council elections are held every two years and rotate between three and four seats. Under the Home Rule Charter adopted in 1961, the city is administered by a council/manager form of government with seven council members elected at large on a non-partisan basis for four-year terms.
