Former mayor Steve Baker may be back in city government. At a special meeting Tuesday, the city council voted unanimously of its intent to appoint Baker to fill the two-year vacated term of Pat Parker. Final approval is expected at the next regular meeting. Parker was elected mayor over Baker by two votes in the November 8 city election after a late write-in campaign. He had served six years on the council. Residents have 14 days from Monday to petition for a special election to fill the vacancy. The meeting was held primarily to administer the oath of office to Parker and new councilmen Andy Carson and Stew Firebaugh. Holdovers are Steve Pote and Mark Vogel.
