It was a changing of the guard for the city of Chico Tuesday night.

Four weeks after Election Day, newly elected members of the Chico City Council, Reanette Fillmer and Andrew Coolidge and returning member Mark Sorensen, took their oaths and their chairs.

Prior to the swearing-in ceremony, outgoing council members Mary Goloff and Scott Gruendl were honored for their service.

The next order of business Tuesday night was selecting a new mayor. By a unanimous vote, council members selected Mark Sorensen as mayor. He will serve in that position for two years. Sean Morgan was selected as vice mayor in a 4 to 3 vote.
