Rolling Hills

By unanimous votes, the City Council has chosen Thomas Heinsheimer as mayor and Godfrey Pernell as mayor pro tem. The office of mayor is rotated annually among council members. A business executive who has been on the council for 13 years, Heinsheimer succeeds Ginny Leeuwenbergh. Heinsheimer has served as mayor four times.

Pernell, a dentist, has been a council member since 1975 when he was appointed to fill a vacated post and has served as mayor twice.

The new council leaders were sworn in at a special council meeting last week.
