County swears in new elected officials
A new year brings new faces and terms of office as Catoosa County held a special swearing-in ceremony Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 2, with six elected officials taking oaths.
While oaths have been taken at the county government building and the courthouse in recent years, Catoosa County officials went a step further this time, holding more of a formal assembly at the Catoosa County Colonnade.
“I know this is a little unusual from what we’ve done in the past, but I think public service needs to have a little better light brought on it,” said Catoosa County Commission Chairman Steven Henry. “It’s a big deal and I just wanted to do a little extra for them.”
