James Nuckols was selected Monday to fill a vacancy on Rockwood City Council.
Nuckols will fill the unexpired term of Bill Thompson, a first-time council member who died last month after a lengthy illness.
“I’m just tickled to death he’s interested,” said council member Jason Jolly. “I know him and his family.”
Nuckols, a former member of the Rockwood Water, Sewer and Natural Gas board, was selected by Mayor James Watts and approved by Council members Jane Long, Jason Jolly and Pete Wright.
