The Cleveland City Council will hold its swearing-in ceremony Monday at 3 p.m., in the Museum Center at Five Points.

The ceremony in the Museum Center, located at 200 Inman St. East, is open to the public.

No new councilmen will be sworn in, as all incumbents won in the recent election.

At-Large Councilman Richard Banks, District 1 Councilman Charlie McKenzie and District 2 Councilman Bill Estes and Mayor Tom Rowland will be sworn in for new terms.

“The oath of office will then be administered to Municipal Court Judge Barrett Painter,” according to a press release.

After taking the oath of office, the City Council will vote on a motion to reappoint John Kimball as city attorney.

The ceremony will begin with roll call and the Pledge of Allegiance.

The Invocation will be given by Heritage Fellowship Church of God Pastor Steve Gilbert.

Recognition of special guests and elected officials in attendance will also be given.

“The ceremony will close with the Benediction and charge to officials by North Cleveland Church of God Senior Pastor Mitch Maloney,” according to a press release.

The public will be invited to join Council members for refreshments after the ceremony.
