Westlake officials take oaths of office

WESTLAKE — City Council members and the city’s top law enforcer were sworn in Monday.

Councilwoman Lori Peterson was the only member with an opponent on the ballot.

“I think we all (on the council) want to work together to make sure we keep the city moving forward with more infrastructure projects,” Peterson said.

She said she will encourage residents to be more involved in council business and attend more meetings.

Mayor Dan Cupit elaborated on current and future infrastructure projects in the city.

“I’m really proud of our development north of town and the golf course and subdivision, which has about 10 houses in it now,” Cupit said.

He said he is looking forward to a new police station and improvements to John Stine and Myrtle Springs roads.

New Police Chief Mike Dickerson said he plans to expose his officers to more training.

“I think they are welltrained coming in, but I want us to work with other agencies to keep up with new laws, techniques and procedures,” Dickerson said.

“Criminals come up with new stuff all the time, so officers have to constantly train and be ready for them.”

Wally Anderson, John Cradure, Bob Hardey and Dan Racca returned to the council; each was unopposed in the last election.
