SCOTTVILLE — Richard Maki is expected to be sworn in as Scottville’s new mayor during the city commission’s regular meeting tonight. Maki has been serving as mayor pro-tem. He replaces Joe Baxter who resigned last week after being jailed for violating the terms of his drunk driving sentence (see related stories).

City Manager Amy Williams said she has only received a verbal resignation from Baxter’s wife, because Baxter was unable to contact her while in jail last week. Williams said she expects a formal letter today and the commission will need to accept the resignation before it swears in the new mayor.

City commission will then need to elect a new mayor pro-tem. Williams said she will also begin the process of advertising for a replacement for Baxter’s commission seat. Baxter was the second ward commissioner, representing the city east of Main Street.

The commission meets at 5:30 p.m. at city hall.
